Amongst the current notebooks, Apple's new MacBook is definitely the most desired, best-looking, best design,.... the list goes on. BUT! the list never seemed to have any memory card readers, or HDMI, or TV-tuners, etc any of the cool and most useful peripherals that almost every other notebook provides. For an entry-level MacBook, one has to shell out $1299, which is much more expensive than most of the notebooks, given the size and capabilities. Fair enough, Apple always has been bringing in top-class processors, body-designs, and now graphic-processors to its notebooks. But if one were to spend so much for an notebook and comparing it with the cost of the others, it is certainly a pain in the wrong place to lose for the wrong reasons. BTW, I am an ardent Apple supporter and do not intend to dig up some mud here. Its just the lingering frustration that everyone has in such a scenario. I really wish at least the next version of the notebooks come with these peripherals and bring in more value for money to the product line-up. What say?!
