I'm looking for a external hdd with thunderbolt connection to my mid 2011 i5 iMac to clone the internal hdd,  however I read that thunderbolt hdd gets very hot to the touch.  Is this true for all thunderbolt hdd or just some?  Can anybody recommend one that's under $300.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion, iPad3, iPod Touch 4, Apple TV

    Your best bet to look at OWC's offerings, they do offer the Buffalo Thunderbolt Ministation, the 500GB model is $188 and the 1TB model is $223. As far as heat, I'd recommend speaking to them but I doubt there are any heat issues.
