The macbooks and macbook pros have been being shipped with the agere firewire chipset which is pretty HORRIBLE if you plan on doing any video or audio production. (Especially, when using bootcamp) - I have a macbook with this Agere firewire, but would like to know if apple has gone back to the TI chips for the newer Macs, or not? On a side note, I have emailed Apple, sent feedback and have gotten no response. I have posted questions about it on the Apple discussion forum and Apple has DELETED MY MESSAGES. Good stuff.
