The latest addition to Apple’s online store is a fancy new high-speed Thunderbolt cable designed to connect your Thunderbolt-equipped devices to the latest iMacs and MacBook Pros.

Thunderbolt technology supports blazing-fast data transfer with two independent channels of 10Gbit/s each. Use the Apple Thunderbolt cable to connect your Thunderbolt-equipped peripherals to your new iMac or new MacBook Pro.

Apple Thunderbolt cable can also be used for Target Disk Mode between two Macs that support Thunderbolt, or to use a new iMac as a display for a MacBook Pro equipped with Thunderbolt.

The cable is 2 meters long and costs $49 in the U.S. and £39 in the U.K.

At the moment, only Apple’s latest iMac and MacBook Pro families feature Intel’s high-speed Thunderbolt technology, however, we’re expecting to see it introduced to the MacBook Air, Mac mini and Mac Pro with the upcoming refreshes.
