Now if they would just stop making them white. Just about any other standard color would be better.

Omfg I'm still waiting for mine to arrive and it wasn't for the upgrade. Do you think I could take it back and get the new version?
Is this a US thing only as it is not listed on the UK site?

I can't find anywhere on the Apple website where the non-pro macbook has a FW port.

Can you?


Correction: Found it. I stand corrected. Not surprised they tuck it away. More surprised they just don't cripple it like the other Macbook. Shame, really. It would be a near perfect computer with FW on the Aluminum Book. And a non-glare screen.

Sorry. I am a cunt. Do I care? Nope. Perhaps just in a bad mood.

Really though. My problem is not with you. You don't intentionally design weaknesses in Apple's entry-level notebooks.
You don't hide the superior machine under the higher-priced unit's webpage. You just linked to that very inferior unit. Hardly worth getting cunty over.

Still, good to see Apple finally producing a sub $2500 notebook that will work with Mainstage.
Not good that they are hiding the fact so that the unawares will spent way too much money that necessary to get what should be a simple function.

Thanks anyway. I do always appreciate a helpful person.

Next time I'll post the link to prevent a fight.

As for being helpful, I believe it is spelled "Cue Points" :wink:

kabuki = FIXED

I agree about the aluminum, those things feels GREAT, but the glare is outrageous and it needs FW!
