As this technology is approaching I would like to say, on behalf of hundreds/thousands of Pro Tools users, that a new Thunderbolt interface, cable  and chassis to the  original HD cards,
replacing the  PCI/ Expresscard interface and the much "too short"  1.5 m. cable, will be very welcome to a large & professional society.
After all, TDM processing power is not replaced by the Light Peak protocol.
Also, there is a question about RAM. Would it be possible to add a chassis with extra RAM, so that 
Pro users could get up to 64 GB on their laptops?
That would really be helpful, with several Pro applications nowadays recommennding 16GB RAM minimum.

ok need some help!

Installed a Magma Expansion chassis as well as Pro Tools 9 today  attached via the proper cable to Digidesign Core 192. After setting everything up. Pro Tools cant see the digidesign. When a test is run the digidesign and all the channels test perfectly but Pro Tools still does not see it! The Cpu in Pro Tools shows no activity. Now after some restarts of the computer its says Pro Tools cannot see the digi device and now it does not even open up! Ok got it all out. So what say you my friends?
