Apple Kills Off FireWire With New MacBooks

Apple pissed off a lot of musicians today, by introducing a new line of sexy MacBooks with no FIreWire ports

Here’s the port lineup for the new MacBooks:

  • MagSafe power port
  • Gigabit Ethernet port
  • Two USB 2.0 ports (up to 480 Mbps)
  • Mini DisplayPort
  • Audio line in
  • Audio line out
  • Kensington lock slot
Yep – if you’ve bought one of the many FireWire audio interfaces or FireWire mixers, the new MacBook line is not for you. Plan on dropping 2 grand or more on a MacBook Pro.

  1. Not only have they pissed us off, they are in danger of crapping out their bottom line. I for one will cannot now buy the new Mac Book. Without the firewire it is useless to me. It’s simply shocking that they have done this.
