Akitio Thunder3 PCIe vs. Akitio Node Lite

So I decided to buy an EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and a DELTA 120W AC Power Adapter, to go with my Akitio Thunder3 PCIe. 

It turns out that the seller had the Akitio Thunder3 PCIe listed as "for sale" but it turns out they lied and had it on back-order, after a month of waiting, I cancelled my order, only to find out that it was sold out / back ordered everywhere else as well. I received all of my other components.

During this time Akitio announced the Akitio Node Lite, which would be better for me as I have a MacBook Pro setup.

 

Does anybody know where to buy the Thunder3, or should I wait for the Node Lite?

(also, if I go with the node lite would it be compatible with my components I already have?)

 

Thank you.

Wait for Node lite absolutely. Thunder 3 is a mess under macOS since Ti82 is not supported.

What exactly does that 'mess' mean, other than the TB3-enabler script?
