Everyone should know that the latest MacBooks come with a Thunderbolt port. Of course it is very practical and forward-looking, but it is not compatible with the old port.
Who wants to connect its existing hardware with FireWire port on his newMacBook, you can now buy a Thunderbolt to FireWire adapter from Appleto do so. The adapter brings you a ‘FireWire 800 port, which delivers up to 7 W for bus-peripherals ”.
The price for the adapter is typical $29 and is therefore not a bargain. Who needs it but it should be within 5 - 7 working days to get delivered from Apple.
