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 today also 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 already available in the Brazilian Apple Online Store for R $ 100 with a delivery time 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 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 the time being only at the Apple Store in the United States, for $ 80.
