    In 2006 I bought a MacBook Pro. A remote came with it. Two weeks ago I bought a MacBook Pro Retina and I'm planning to buy another one. I wonder when did Apple stopped including the remote in their PCs?

    I believe 2009 was the last model year to have the remote included.

    The 2012 cMBP models are the last ones that have an IR sensor to support the remote. They now expect you to pull out an iDevice to be able to run a presentation without touching the computer.

    That's unfortunate.

    I have 4 iPads at home, but using them won't be as comfortable as using a remote.

    When they stopped having IR sensors (when the rMBP came out in 2012)

    I use Rowmote - turns any iDevice into a remote working across WiFi...
