[Discuss] adb devices and Macbook Air/Pro old and new

Getting some older Macs is workable.

If I [also] went with option 2, does anyone have recommended devices?
 We do have some Mac-based software that will look for a USB port, so
if a USB to Thunderbolt adapter/converter/fob exists, there would need
to be software to intercept USB calls and direct it to the Thunderbolt
port, thus the software and the cart think they are talking to the USB
port, when, in fact, the Thunderbolt port is being used.
