So, does anyone else think that the FW800 on the Mini is a bit of a slap in the face for Unibody MacBook owners? That's just gotta sting.

i dont think so at all.
most of the FW 800 devices are fairly static anyway and not much that people will really carry with them everywhere. so for the average (and lets face it they build it to the average) user will not see a difference in it being there or not.
pro users may but most full pro users will have a laptop for the road and a desktop where most of the real work is done. makes sense to put it on the desktop, though to me putting it on the mini seems more odd than not putting it on the macbook
So about that 'space' reason given before, add a FW port and a SD port?
|I too would rather have seen extra USB ports instead of an SD slot. I can understand why the dropped expresscard though. How many people actually use it compared to other things like, SD cards?|
Also, I wish they would get rid of the plastic one completely and just have them all called "MacBooks". Though, now everyone can say they have a "Pro" if they buy a Unibody machine, so it was probably all thought up by psychologists in a ploy to get more sales.
