Many Apple customers were not happy upon learning that the new Macbooks will not have FireWire.
Some of the comments include, “Apple really screwed up with no FireWire port” and “No MacBook with [FireWire] — no new MacBook for me.”
FireWire is an interface and data transfer specification which can process much faster than a USB. Steve Jobs described them in 1999 that, “Think of FireWire as USB, but rather than running at 12Mbit/sec., it’s running at 400Mbit/sec.”
Apple has not respond to comment on users’ reactions about not including FireWire on most new Macbook models.
