3 Apple: "our Pro line is too pretty to support internal expansion, so use Thunderbolt to connect additional graphics cards."

Also Apple: "we don't sell a Thunderbolt external-GPU chassis, probably because Ive couldn't make it look like a donut."

Third parties: "We built this expansion chassis to support any graphics card you can put into a Windows box, but you might not be able to get signed Mac drivers for them all."

Google: "We're smarter than you, and need unrestricted access to change what's installed on your computer at any time, to protect you from software that will damage your OS."

Also Google: "Sorry we damaged your OS. You shouldn't have worn that short skirt."
