I mean seriously, how many people have a reason to stream 4 1080P video files from a raid array, into a laptop, into another monitor. This is extremely unrealistic. When Thunderbolt reaches its projected 100gbit/s max speed then it'll be revolutionary. Right now its just a waste of money.
Isn't it full duplex?

I think it would, 4x PCIe would totally be enough bandwidth!

Correction, Thunderbolt is the release name of the partial product.

Hint: Thunder=electrical, Light=optical

In a near future the full Lightpeak will be released (that will be when optical cables will overcome the restraints of brittle glass strands that form fiber optics)

Many fibre optic cables are made from plastic too. Indeed I have a couple TOSLink cables (one a couple metres long, which is coiled up) which do not exhibit any kind of brittleness.
