Is that true?
WTF. The Apple Remote has been included in the past. Is this to appease Business Users whose IT departments take the remote away and extract the CR2032 for other uses (trust me, I've see the graveyard).
Blasphemy. If this is really what is occurring, then it is to appease the Mac Evangelists who would faint at the sight of a cardboard box of Apple Remotes raped of their batteries.
Ahahahaha....if i didn't work at radioshack at one time i wouldn't understand the CR2032 reference. but since i did...... hilarious office managers.
and yes, no remotes this time around.
dunno about you but it always made me feel better to spend $3000 on a remote and get a free macbook pro!
I'm hoping they'll start selling the Apple Remote in the store as an accessory in case I *God forbid* lose mine...then it's only $20 to replace it
They always have. $20.
The Apple Remote seems to be going the way of the iSight; get them while they're hot!
Apple's getting rid of old stock to make room for... built-in Apple Remotes!
Really? I guess I didn't know that... oh well - I have yet to lose it so no worries
Obviously Apple's polling determined that a lot of people never used it. I always kinda wondered what the point of a remote for a laptop was. I mean, it's nice, but how many people actually use it often?

Use mine all the time. Hook my laptop up the hdtv, and use Frontrow to watch shows/movies/etc.
I guess if you never hooked it up to the television, it does seem a little redundant with your laptop sitting directly in front of you.
They could of threw it in just another way of screwing the consumer.
Maybe they'll introduce a replacement soon, using blutooth? Several new products are missing the remote now...
My hope is an Apple branded universal remote. I hate just about every UR out there. I imagine Apple could make a striking one incorporating ipod/iphone/apple tv/mac functions if they wanted. Or, an application to use the itouch/iphone as a remote. I hate using my apple tv remote to type in information, Using the virtual keyboard on the iphone would be awesome.
