I freakin' loved the Apple Cube. Sigh... Good analogy though.

I agree with both of you. No DVD drive? Instant failure.

Loved the cube, too. Such a pretty machine; it was a good idea that was poorly implemented.

I dunno...I wasn't sure about it until I saw it in person and played with it, but it's a gorgeous machine. It's difficult to fathom the size and design in photos. The no optical drive factor isn't a deal breaker for me - I so rarely use the one in my MacBook, and I'm almost always on a network with another machine.

If my primary machine was a desktop and my laptop was a secondary machine, I would buy one of these in a heartbeat, especially now that I travel all the time for work.

Its so freakin' spensy! And I need something a lot more rugged (i.e. i would break it in half by day 2).

Having been at Macworld for the announcement and played with it for a bit, I think that the only thing really wrong with it is the price. It should be priced 1200-1300. You won't care that there's no DVD drive - Really. You need to see one in person to be truly appreciate how small it is - It's pretty incredible.

Amen! I just fail to see the allure of finding another computer to have to install CD/DVD software. Among other things. I'll pass...

I suppose the lack of optical drive isn't too big a deal... 'member the imac with no floppy? everyone freaked out about that too.

I'm a day late here, but I'll bet you it won't be long before we'll be downloading all software anyway. I imagine Apple's already working on that and, in fact, so much software is already deployed through downloading that we won't see enclosed applications on disc much longer...you'll just buy a product and be directed to a site link for downloading.

I love the physical specs of the machine, I don't like the technical specs. I just bought a middle of the road Macbook and it's small enough (even if it's not too hip now thanks to the Air) and has much better specs.
