is it possible to connect two thunderbolt macs at the same time?
i would like to buy the 8big rack and use it with two thunderbolt imacs at the same time like a "nas". Does this work in any way?

This is a direct storage device, connect it to a Mac and then share (A Mac Mini is often used just for this). For shared storage without using one of your computers a NAS storage device is needed.

Size, Shape, & lbs.
I don't see dimensions or wight. So I would like to know the dimensions before I make a purchase. It looks as though it would be able to fit size wise in a laptop bag, also because of that reason I'm curious if it would make a lot more weight in the bag?

This is designed to be installed as a rack mount in a server room - it is most definitely not designed to fit in a laptop bag. At 18.9" x 1.7" x 30.4", 33lbs without any drives installed, and 44lbs with 8 drives, you would be better off buying a portable drive with a thunderbolt connection for day to day use. There are units out there such as the Pegasus series that may not have the exact same capacity (32TB for $4599USD as an example) but may be more suited to a pro/prosumer environment that may not have a server rack to install into.
