I just needed a place to really blow off some steam on apple for not including this very basic component in the new MacBook Pro. I just can't believe them sometimes! 2500$ notebook and ZERO options to connect it to my tv set?!? not everyone in the world have HDTVs, Steve! a 400$ cheap laptop has S-Video out! I promised myself to get the first intel notebook that will come out, but this is just redicilous. You've got this great front row feature with remote and everything, but with no way to see it on the big tv screen. I am already guessing Apple's plan, they're probably gonna offer AirTunes with video support real soon, so they took out the s-video port to force people into buying this (probably) 199$ periphel. I am just disappointed. If it were the iBook they were replacing - so be it. but powerbook? The funny thing is, the iBook replacement probably WILL have S-Video out, cause it's a must for regular consumers. Apple really blew it this time. They just don't listen to their customers anymore.
