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.

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.

^^^a mac with those specs u just listed will cost a lot more than $1500

their thunderbolt port is going to be the new ethernet port... it allows 2 streams of 10gbps.

so they're pretty much making everything run through one port now

i can see youre very articulate. your contributions to this thread have been very insightful.

you sheep would justify anything apple puts out
if you actually look at all threads i posted, and all my posts in this section, you would know im the complete opposite of an Apple sheep. I have a custom built (by myself) windows 7/ubuntu PC and a RAZR MAXX. I dont even own 1 apple product.

apple will not get my business until they can match their competitors' hardware.

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.
1 can be easily bypassed, 2 and 3 are extremely rare occurrences, but number 4 and what you said after that are very true. didnt think about that.

whats stupid is replying with your emotion instead of your opinion.

you can get an ethernet/usb adapter, but what he meant was Apple uses a different type of port that they invented called the thunderbolt port that comes on all their recent computers.

So basically i got to buy a 50 dollar part to use ethernet after spending 1500? I already have to buy a 50 hdmi dongle. Then i gotta carry this part around too? So dumb

I love apple but some people supportin this is stupid as fuk. They take away feature and people are happy? Maybe next time they have no usbs and people here would be like i dont remember when i used usbs lol. Basically a mac book air..
imo.. the macbook air came with the ethernet dongle...

lets see if they could come up with an one port idea similar to the card slot they have

Professionals like me use clusters of computers to render complex video and animations through Gigabit Ethernet. Macbook Pro

Even my 12-core Mac Pro could use another Ivy Bridge MBP at home to speed up renders. Time is money and they playin with my money if they take out Gigabit Ethernet. And no I don't want to pay an extra 50-100 bucks for a Thunderbolt adapter for it.

Optical drive can kick rocks though.... Especially if they do BTO 2nd Bay HDs.
