FireWire is the hot topic right now on some discussion boards, since Apple decided to leave it off the just-released lines of MacBook. However, you're looking at buying a new MacBook and if you think FireWire could be important to your workflow, check out the discount prices for the last-generation MacBook Pro.

On Amazon, an Apple MacBook Pro MB133LL/A 15.4-inch Laptop (2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 2 GB RAM, 200 GB Hard Drive, DVD/CD SuperDrive) costs $1,594.00 with free shipping. But wait, that's not all! There's a $150 rebate.

So, the price is a bit less than the current MacBook but you don't get the solid aluminum construction, more-efficient and faster graphics chip and bigger hard drive. However, you do get a much bigger screen, card slot and that FireWire port.
