  1. after looking at those pictures, I’m hoping they eventually move the lock to make room for a Firewire. There is plenty of room.

    But then again, I wanted one on the Time Machine, along with an Airtunes port.

  2. The new machines look great, but the only thing I’m really unhappy with is that Apple doesn’t include the necessary video adapter cables anymore. That certainly adds a lot to the cost of the machine and when combined with the lack of an Apple Remote, it seems we’re slowly getting less for more.

    Look at picture #11.
    The lock could be relocated, possibly to the back, the circuit board expanded and a port added, with the audio ports moved toward the front utilizing the space left from the lock.
    I know there would be more to it than this, but what I was looking at was the space between the back of the laptop and the mid brace (my term).
    Actually, the lock may have to be on the other side because of the lids action when opened.
    But you know, even if they drop a USB, it would be better.

  4. I’m guessing they took out the adapters because too many never used them, there are a lot of people who don’t use a external/second monitor with their laptops. I do, but I have the MBPro with the DVI port and use a DVI LCD, my MB Pro came with a DVI to VGA adapter which I have never used.
