What do you guys think, has apple once again done something
ingenious, or are they just aesthetic gurus?

The macbook air doesn't have an optical drive thats why it uses it. The interesting thing is that the new Air doesn't have a HDD just a large internal flash drive.

Think about it...it will force customers to download everything, including any updates apple has. Plus, using USB uses less power in the computer. It will cost apple less to provide software post-purchase.

It also benefits the customer, because USB drives last longer, and aren't open to getting scratches so they can't be read.

You guys are right though: it isn't anything new. Most PC guys I know do everything with USB. Most USBs go over 1GB anyway, so you're getting a deal.

The only drawback is you can't burn DVDs anymore...

Or you can buy a 10-15 gb flash drive put music on it and get a better radio then you have and get cd player/dvd player in your car that has a usb port? They are out there.... Just sayin

can n*ggas read??? its a "software reinstall drive". it'll replace the cd that usually comes with all PC's that has a backup operating system. they usually give you like 3-4 cd's with all the back-up software. this will save bootup time, space, and can't get scratched or broken as easily as a CD.

n*ggas are sayin' we have had these for a while, but i personally have never seen a flash drive with pre-installed software on it except for the usual plug and play drivers.

this>>>>>>>>previous backup software methods.

Who gives a s**t how a company gives you the backup software. The only reason they did this s**t is cus alot of their laptops don't have drives. f**k Apple.
