MacBook Pro Is Faster, but Lacking In Other Areas
If you’re like me, you may not be rushing to upgrade to a MacBook Pro because of not wanting to risk falling victim to possible revision 1 problems. I want to see what the next incarnation of the MacBook brings.
But if being a first-adopter isn’t an issue to you, here are some other reasons to wait:
- No modem. (Yeah, no modem!!)
- No S-Video output unless you buy a $19 adapter for the DVI port.
- No Firewire 800.
- Optical drive is slower and does not do dual-layer.
- Fewer pixels on screen (though screen is much brighter).
- Current PC Card slot devices now incompatible in favor of the new ExpressCard/34 format (rendering my camera memory PC Card adapters useless).
