very interesting as that i didn't know about light peak (intel's light-based transfer system)

My System Specs

Smile Press Release

You know this stuff is coming. I think at this stage, people are used to technological leaps and bounds and will be anticipating these newer, more advanced breakthroughs sooner rather than later.
Can you imagine what the home pc will look like in 5-10 yrs from now. Probably the same as we look at the quad compared to the P1 and graphics advances nowadays. Maybe software advances will catch up to hardware. Hmmm

Smart move if they can make usb3/light peak combo ports. The easier the transition the better of intel will be.
