Elgato has released Thunderbolt Dock that adds extra ports by connecting a single port to the back of any Mac. It is a must-have and a very useful accessory for Macbook Air users which is really scarce on the ports-end.
Thunderbolt Dock from Elgato includes 9 ports and one more for 12V power adapter. There are a dedicated thunderbolt port for the input and one for daisy chaining extra peripherals such as HDMI, Ethernet and 3x USB 3.0 ports.

An alternative to this is Belkin Thunderbolt Express dock which we also gave a thumbs up. However, that one comes with an HDMI instead of FireWire 800.
- Elgato sells it for $229 and the package includes a thunderbolt cable too.
