11. Re: OSX vs Win7 Nov 10, 2008, 20:41 Dan =0)
whatever the case, Apple royally screwed the pooch by taking firewire off the new Macbooks.. total bonehead move, considering one of their primary markets is A/V pros - which tend to use manifold FW devices

FW's been retained on the new MBP... still, I wouldn't want to pay -more- for effectively the same hardware (Firewire port, that is...) I've got on an older consumer-levelish iBook...

Bah. I hope their next refresh reintroduces FW (and introduces eSATA). I use FireWire exclusively for loading samples from, and recording audio to, an external drive...
