Please don't get me wrong, I like the new iMac (3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 released November 2012), and I would love to be the proud new owner of one. However the lack of a DVD drive is preventing me from purchasing one. I live in a very small house and don't have room for a tower, the all in one iMac was perfect for me. My current iMac sits on an end table with not much room for the keyboard and trackpad, and now I have to find more room for a superdrive... Now, not having the DVD drive keeps me from buying it. I'm very space conscious, which means having a DVD drive hanging off of a very crucial USB port is not something that I want to look at every time that I need to insert a DVD/CD (which I use quite often, as NO ONE will send out a brand new thumb drive anytime you order a new movie, pictures, software, its still cheaper to use a DVD). I understand not utilizing a blue ray drive, I'm not a big fan of blue ray. Great for data storage, but the 4.4g that a DVD holds seems sufficient for the rest of the world right now. Blue ray was too early for its own good, and too expensive. Not having the DVD is quite good for business for Apple. Now they get to sell you another component that normally would not be sold had they put it into their "All-in-one". I understand that there are ways around not having one, however this is supposed to be top notch, not patch together. My world is not ready for no DVD drive. Apple is ahead of the game as usual, I just believe that they may be a little too far ahead of the game on this one. APPLE!!! I hope that you are listening! I have been hanging on to my 2005 iMac waiting on its replacement. It was time for a new machine, and now I have to wait again. Thanks. Sincerely, a patient customer. Now that my griping is over, is it possible to hang a USB superdrive off of the time capsule and access it over wi-fi? I'm guessing that it would be much slower, but still possible. Oh, and forget about using another device while accessing the USB Superdrive over wi-fi... Just a thought. Thanks!
