Let me get this straight, the upcoming ThinkPad Edge will have a Thunderbolt connector...but the ThinkPad T430u will not??!
Lenovo, if you're going to make the ThinkPad T series your top of the line model, you MUST make Thunderbolt connector an option or standard connector. USB 3.0 is good but not as fast as Thunderbolt. Now that's speedy business.
