The Ultimate Dream Mac Setup

Ultimate Mac Setup
 

What a setup? There are three 30-inch Apple Cinema displays, a 23-inch display, 1.42 GHz Mac Mini, a G5, iSight, and a 17-inch Powerbook G4 in that. Where do people get this kind of money... We are soooo jealous. :P

What's missing in MacBook Pro?

Now that the buzz has died down a bit, it's time to introspect. And yes, there are quite a few things that are missing on MacBook Pro compared to the now legacy "PowerBook", apart from "Power" in the name.

No Modem

That's right, there's no modem on the new Powerbook's (oops.. MacBook Pro). You can use an external modem, but come'on seriously will you carry one? And, no not every place in the world has wireless.

No PCMCIA

Apple has dumped the PCMCIA card slot for the new "Express Card". Sure, it's faster but the only problem is that there aren't too many "Express Card" accessories. Of course, since they aren't backwards compatible, you can't plug your PCMCIA card into the "Express Card" slot either.
