too thin, too expensive....time to get a discounted macbook now though
Anyone else notice that the PC in the guided tour was using XP, rather than Vista?
Yeah, I noticed that. Sucks.
Hrmm I wonder if its going to support target disk mode via USB 2.0, since we have no FireWire.
also, no apple remote included in the box according to tech specs. but there seems to be an IR port. interesting.
Just realized something, um...interesting:
Ok Apple......****ING PATA? What is this, 2006? Is there any justification for this? I get that 4200RPM wouldn't even make use of SATA's speeds, but this seems like an extremely strange thing to backtrack on.
Well it's a 1.8" drive, most likely the same being used in current iPods
maybe PATA is the only kind available?
Yeah, that's probably true.
Edit: So what happens in the event that your OSX install gets totally hosed somehow and you don't have the external drive? Would it be likely that the drive sharing feature is also in the firmware?
Apple remote is an option at $20. $20 seems to be the currency equivalent of "go **** yourself" at this point.
They announced a software solution that will allow sharing a optical drive on another Mac - presumably something like target disk mode over USB
simply not worht the money. with a few hundered more u can get a mbp or spend less and still get an awesome macbook
That seems to be on the money.
It's weird that this machine has an IR port but no remote. The Apple remote must cost virutally nothing to manufacture. Why is it missing?
