http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/15/tech/gaming-gadgets/thinner-apple-macbook/index.html?hpt=hp_t3

PROS:
- HD Retina Display
- Thinner, Lighter
- Physical power button

CONS:
- No optical drive
- No ethernet port

Is an HD screen really worth not having a CD drive? What if your only means of connecting to the internet is by a provided WIRED connection?

1- CD drives are as useful as envelopes.

2- if you cant afford a wireless router, or internet, then you probably shouldnt be buying a 1500 dollar computer.

1. Firmware updates for wireless routers is not recommended over wifi due to the fact that there is so much interference that it can fail and turn your router into a brick.
2. Too many wifi connection to a router can over heat it.
3. Some router needs Ethernet connection hooked to the pc to set up your wifi.
4. I can get higher top speed over Ethernet than wifi.


Wifi is great, but i take Ethernet cord over wifi especially for gaming or downloading sensitive data.

Not having a CD rom is a different story. Flash cards(sd card) flash drives and cloud storage has made CD from obsolete.


The thing I don't like all these thing missing, is that they takes these things from the Macbook pro line. Isn't this why they created the MacBook air for.

Oh you cant call me broke because my laptop cost around 1500 when I bought it.

I don't know why apple stan think people who don't like apple PC because they can't afford it.

I don't know. Maybe people who want high end PC that has 16gb ram, 3ghz quad core i7 3rd gen, with solid state hard drive while having gtx 580 sli for gaming or npvdia quaddro and future proof to last a very long time. Then again that rig most likely is in the 2400 range.

sh*t obviously you don't game, or do any serious programming, video editing or photoshopping.

sh*t do you know how long it takes to convert videos on sh*tty computers.

sigh...they are adding Ethernet connection with a dongle. So they are not getting rid of it all together and to the people who claim broke that broke bullsh*t need to shut the fuk up.
Many government and companies only allow Lan connections to access company servers/intranet sites.

Apple can do no wrong huh? Every company is not perfect and Apple slips up too. You can never stay at the top of the mountain forever. What comes up, must come down pretty much. Apple has made some mistakes in the past with there products like the iphone in particular.
