    I have a 2010 15-inch MacBook Pro and I'm about to buy the latest 15-inch MacBook Pro (2.3 GHz). I want to know about all the hardware features that I won't be getting, compared to my old MacBook. These are the ones I know about so far:

    • SuperDrive
    • IR sensor
    • Sleep light
    • Battery check lights
    • Ethernet port
    Are there any other ones? Thanks!

    The loss of a superdrive is two fold. You lose access to two sata connections (potentially two HDDs/SSDs) and get a proprietary PCI-E port instead.

    One more thing... The solid round alu Power button. On the rMBP, the Power button is a black square flimsy plastic key. Yuck...!


    Just one more thing... The ever speedily Snow Leopard...

    Are you sure, it's Aluminum? To me it looks like metallized plastic.
