I'll reserve my kudos for when they revise their iOS developer tax.
Really?! I guess if you don't include the CPU, GPU, hard drive (with extra slot?), oh and a little thing called THUNDERBOLT while keeping hdmi meaning you can run two or more displays. But sure, less hardware
Oh, for those bemoaning the loss if their optical drive... 1) Of course you can install windows without an optical drive.

The HDMI standard also fails to explain what are the maximum cable lengths at what resolutions, which DP does. Not a problem for most, but it...
