I'm seriously baffled by this, and I hope that for at least the next five years I'll be able to buy new Macs without being forced to give up my DVD collection. I mean, what is Apple thinking? Are they completely out of touch with reality? Do they think that everybody has internet connections that allow them to transfer 2GB films to their friends in <5 minutes? If a family wants to send a home movie to their family, is Apple saying they should no longer use iMovie and iDVD, but simply send it over the internet? And what about watching films? DVDs look better than quicktime files that are 720x480, because their bitrate is much higher. To supply non-physical films that are in decent quality it has to be at least 720p. If people can't download that in under ten minutes, they're going to still prefer a disk. And what about all the thousands of films and DVDs that aren't coming to blu-ray anytime soon, and aren't going to be available as digital downloads anytime soon? (And Apple isn't even supplying Blu-Ray players in their machines!) The internet is just not fast enough yet, to phase out physical media. They need to wait until the AVERAGE connection speed around the US is at least 100mb down. Why is Apple doing this? The vast majority of the public at this point will say "hell no!" to phasing out DVD usage. Is apple trying to pull the baby out of the womb at 6 months?
