derFunkenstein wrote:Yeah, i'm not real big on it either. Hopefully it has a PS/2 or Serial port so we can plug in a mouse.
I dunno, I may still go with the iMac for myself. Depends on Macbook prices.
Q: No Blu-ray, and display port -- why no HDMI?
A: Steve: HDMI is limited in resolution. Phil: for typical computer use, display port is the connector of the future.
