A few years ago, the Macbook had a firewire port, then, they took it off because supposedly they wanted it to be simpler (so I heard from an Apple Genius.) Is that what they are doing now with the Macbook Pro 13? I know that the only reason they have Intel graphics is because they wanted to conserve battery power, but is the whole machine, in all, an upgrade? They now have the new Intel core i5, with two cores and 2.3 GHz. I read that the new processor was supposedly much faster, and last time I checked, 2.4 GHz was better than 2.3 GHz. Maybe there is some detail I overlooked, maybe I'm just not smart. I just want to know if it is worth it to "up"grade, and if it is an upgrade.
