USB 3 might be very nice but I do not see anything but USB 2.0 in a new Macbook and USB 2.0 is very slow with file transfer to and from an external HDD.

Floppy drives? That is not even a fair thing to compare this to at all.
There's also a fair number of people who can't even afford the "new" MacBook. The Pro is only $800 more as it is. I realize that can be a tidy sum for some people. If you gotta have the firewire, then buy the "old" MacBook. Apple is selling those still, and for less than the "new" one. I don't see how Apple is obligated to make sure everyone who wants the new models can also have everything they want in it at the entry level. The new MacBook as is will suffice for quite a lot of people. I'd be OK with it myself if not for the 13" screen. Rather than fuss how they don't have a 15" option for the MacBook, I'm just going Pro. Not an easy extra $800 for me either, but it's that or suffer the smaller screen.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
