    I am pretty much sold on the new aluminum MacBooks, but the one thing that is a problem is the fact that there is no included FireWire port.

    Is there any possible way that I can use FireWire on the new MacBook? Is there an external option anywhere?

    A good time for some third party to rake in the dough.

    theres a small (and in my mind very doubtful) hope that the Ethernet port could double as firewire... but i don't think apple has allowed it.

    with what?

    With some kind of workaround that no one has thought of and doesn't exist. :D

    Maybe someone will come out with a wireless firewire hub. It wouldnt be the fastest way to transfer files but i think it would be possible.
