No ethernet is dumb for a Macbook PRO ... for the Air its fine.
No Optical Drive ..who cares An external will be available. good enough

$1500 for a computer..
Thats REGULAR for REAL computer users ( People that actually use it for something )
Its not for you FL Studio, AMD chip, Shared Video memory , taking it to Best Buy when its Broken MF....

They're smart, but I hate it. I hate buying dongles for the Mini-DVI port. I'm probably just going to buy a new iMac when they refresh and just take pristine care of my macbook pro.

I work in the tech industry and this sh*t worried me when I read it...now the macbook air is the macbook pro?

I could care less about the cd, im good with ISOs...

but i need a port to connect to the internet, wifi cant compare to when you are wired in.

these lames don't know about Ubuntu....

I try to tell people everyday that a mac equals a lexus, if you need a clean daily driver and aren't going to be doing anything crazy then it suits you.

But a linux machine is like getting a toyota if you're a dope a.ss mechanic,and if you know what you are doing you can turn that into sh*t a super machine.

1500 for a laptop is normal but for a mac your buying a reg basic laptop with a average video card and the machine is non customizable when you can cop a XPS which is more powerful and you can build it for a cheaper price

Bottomline all these OS's are essentially the same...I do prefer unix/linux to dos machines though, just cause I know them better.

My Ubuntu, Windows 8, and mac desktops all act and look the exact same. It's about making a workflow right for you, it doesn't depend on the system.

... that they're taking a good feature out of so that they can sell it at the same price or higher to make more money off of people. why dont they add cellular radios to increase the functionality

anyone that doesn't care about this being taken away is a casual computer user period...I have the pro Dropbox account for my web development/design files that syncs my work computer and my home laptop and if I had to only save my files and conduct business over wifi I'd be extremely upset and constantly waiting.
