Who says they'll go any in the near future?
K... no offense, but apple hasn't always been the most up to date when it comes to upgrading it's optical drives. I mean for crying out loud the top level PowerMac's are still using the 8x burner, when all i would accept is a 16x. And, the family main computer is a Windoes98Se which we brought way back in '99, and IT has DVD-ROM drive that has been there since we brought it. Just becuase we have the technology doesn't mean ANYONE will implement it for a while.
