New imacs question pt10 003

Well the new imac was announced today. Im on a 2009 imac and need to upgrade. I have a digi 003 pt10 using all high end outboard converters. Everything is running good on osx lion.

My question is how is pt10 003 and mountain lion working. Ive heard various reports. And should i be able to just use a cloned backup of my current drive with pt10 osx lion if mountain lion is gonna give me trouble. with the new imac. Or should i just go with a current imac at closeout prices. Thanks

Considering this too.
My concern is what are the options to connect FW 400 PT boxes with a computer that only has USB and Thunderbolt.


best,
Sean

They make firewire 800 to thunderbolt cables. You can then use a firewire 400 to 800 to the thunderbolt conector and daisy chan in. That will cost you about $60.00

I understand you can string these together,Im more interested in if has anyone had success doing this.
Ive read numerous reports that Thunderbolt/FW adaptors do not offer full bi directional data flow in some applications.

which scares me.

I'm a few days into setting up my new system: New iMac > PT10 > 002. PT is not too happy with the setup.

Have you purchased your new setup yet? Any luck making things play nice?
