This is a duplicate. It's already been posted in the news section in the Steve Jobs thread.
So, because someone posted this article in a reply to a thread with 1,735 replies, I can't start a thread in the appropriate forum for it? Are you a moderator? If not, don't act like one. Don't try to shut down other people's threads.
Best is to alert a mod with the report post if there is a strong reason to report a post. But the OP has a point - new thread - It's a worthy article, that is useful to link to as some might otherwise bash Apple a little too harshly about the type and number of ports offered for the MacBook vs MacBook Pro
I think it's more a financial differentiation decision than anything else. They want people to buy the Pro.
Their spin department was lousy at the Keynote, and it's lousy now. Not that I mind not having a firewire port, I don't give a hoot. I just want them to be honest about it.
Yes it could.
I don't know about anyone else but I'd rather have firewire than unibody - at least I would use it instead of just look at it. Or 1 USB 1 firewire would be fine as well.
There's a thread about the same thing with links to tear-down pictures instead of a Gizmodo article a few pages back.
I thought the FireWire threads had died down, too. I guess I was wrong.
I don't see it being anything more than a design CHOICE. They could've for example thrown out the Kensington lock (does anybody actually use that apart from stores?) and put a USB in that spot, leaving space for the FW near the Ethernet port.
