Well firstly, they DID get rid of a mechanical latching mechinism, which was great.
And i think they could move to some sort of induction method of turning it on and off. The less moving parts the better!
the man DOES have a point.
But then so do the "whiners." Personally I would love to see it flush, because I would leave it in there as a backup.
Actually, considering that fact, I think I would prefer removing the optical drive for storage. Esp. in a few years when ~128/256/512/whatever GB become affordable
Yea that is a tough call. I suppose in the future we might have 1.8" SSD affordable drives, which means there could be two AND enough battery for 8 hours, but in the short term I'm not sure which I'd prefer.
I feel its mostly the low end too.
I don't suppose a compromise is possible?
base machine non-expandable (but same housing), with upper level machines costing more and being expandable?
Seems like confusing/not "neat" enough in Apple's eyes though.
that is the VERY upgrade I (and many others, likely) plan to do with the mini.
I'm going to wait a year or two for the prices to drop significantly. Then, when the warranty is gone i'm gonna go to town.
