Heh, I thought they gave up on firewire. Even with this new standard... it's still not up to par with USB 3.0

A MBPro with a blu-ray, usb 3.0, 512 Gb SSD with high reads and writes, more battery power and a crazy high res matte screen would be my dream MBP. Sadly I have a last gen MBP. With the new changes I might think upgrading on the next refresh.
Although for everything on my list to be reached is still a dream, or is it?
It's just a rumor, and until it's proven it turns into fact. I'd like for Mac's to have USB 3.0 and the upcoming FireWire but first Intel needs to get it's act together with USB 3.0 and include it on all of their chipsets from here on out.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Why bother? There aren't many USB 3.0 devices out yet... It's easier to let 3rd parties eat the cost of adding USB 3.0 to their MBs than to invest all the extra money to integrate it. Once usb 3.0 is out in full force, intel will adopt. When it's worth it.
In the mean time they're working on putting fibre into their chips.
AMD has more SATA 6GBs and USB 3.0 ports on their motherboards due to the fact that they incorporated it into their chipsets. And I don't get what the fuss is, USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1. SATA 6GBs is backwards compatible with SATA 3GBs and so on.
lol... it costs money to implement... and intel knows they can offset the costs to someone else.
Doesn't bother me any... there are hardly any options on the market for Sata 6g products or USB 3.0 products. I rarely use the USB ports i've got lol
It's really not a huge deal. And i'd rather see the things their doing with fibre become a reality than USB 3.0.
USB 3.0? Oh, stuff that has been available on the PC for months now, right? Another Apple innovation!
Pffft. My ASUS P6X58D has USB 3.0
Yep, the Macolytes have been waiting already. ***YAWN***
It will have to be added by Apple if it's to become a reality. They're famous for locking down their PC's to prevent you from upgrading on your own. Adding the new hard drive to my iMac 24" was a lot like giving birth. What a PITA!
Apple was the one that implemented Firewire 800 more than any other Mfg. out there, and it's nice and fast too. FireWire at 3200 speeds would be smokin' fast.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Definitely no Blu-Ray. Jobs is on record saying that Blu-ray is a waste of time.
Jobs is on record saying a lot things that are utterly retarded.
