Latest MacBook Laptops To Include New Data, Video Port

NEW YORK (AP) — Apple says its new MacBook laptops include a new type of port for high-speed connections to both displays and external hard drives.

The technology, called Thunderbolt, was developed by Intel Corp., which means it has a chance of getting wide adoption in the PC industry.

Thunderbolt replaces the Mini DisplayPort on MacBooks, and can connect directly to DisplayPort monitors, most of which are made by Apple Inc. Like DisplayPort, the Thunderbolt port can be used with adapters to connect to displays with DVI, HDMI and VGA connectors.

What’s new is that Thunderbolt can also carry data, to peripherals like hard drives that use USB, FireWire, Ethernet or the new PCI Express standard. It also carries data at speeds 20 times higher than most current USB cables.
