Re: new macbook pro retina display... no firewire !
Bought a 17" in April 2012 and can not be happier!
And it has a 2.5 Gbps card reader permanently attached to the PCIe interface. Plus 16GB of ram, makes it faster than my Mac Pro which also has 16GB of ram.
Now what attaches to the Thunderbolt socket besides the incredibly expensive LaCie drive?
