Apple launches new Thunderbolt adapters – FireWire 800 and Gigabit Ethernet – and MagSafe 2 power adapter

Along with the new MacBooks Pro with Retina display, Apple also today launched two new Thunderbolt adapters: the Thunderbolt for Gigabit Ethernet it’s the Thunderbolt for FireWire 800.

The first one, with an RJ-45 connector and compatible with 10/100 / 1000BASE-T networks, is now available in the Brazilian Apple Online Store for R $ 100 with a delivery period of at least three weeks. As for the adapter for FireWire ports, compatible with speeds of up to 800Mbps, it will only be available from July – still without a defined price.

Two other new features that came with the launch were the new 85W Apple MagSafe 2 charger for MacBooks Pro with Retina display – with a thinner magnetic DC connector than the previous one – and the 45W Apple MagSafe 2 for MacBooks Air, both for $ 300 .

Apple also launched this little piece here:

Apple - MagSafe to MagSafe 2 Converter

This is the MagSafe to MagSafe 2 Converter, a simple converter from the original version of MagSafe to the new, more compact one, MagSafe 2. The accessory is available for R $ 50 in Brazil.

Finally, we have what appears to be an updated version of the Apple USB SuperDrive, now compatible with the new MacBooks (in addition to the Macs mini) – available for now only at the Apple Store in the United States, for $ 80.
