I've been waiting to upgrade my MacBook after moving from a 15" PowerBook a while back, we're now heavily invested in Mac's at home and at the business, and in FireWire storage. It's already at 2Gb RAM, had a new battery and HD upgrade. I'm also a bit of a minimalist, always gone for smaller laptops, the PowerBook being the exception that proved the rule, a bit big to lug around. So I was gobsmacked when I discovered that the new MacBook has no FireWire! This creates a few issues for me;

  • Either I go back to the larger form factor of the MacBook Pro
  • Get a MacBook Air.. oh wait, no FireWire there either
  • Throw away all our FireWire kit and buy USB ... Doh!
  • Stay with the old MacBook
Looks like the last option is my only realistic one, at least I won't get any grief from the Financial Controller :) What were you thinking Apple.
