So since the Intel switch I have recommend the Apple MacBook as the best choice laptop for all sorts of situations.

It still offers a stable, Tier 1 build quality, the advantages of the OS X, the ā€˜iā€™ apps and looks good.

However with the new release models there has a been a number of significant changes and not all for the best.

The Firewire 400 ports have been removed from all the laptops and only a single Firewire 800 port remains on the MacBook Pro.

In terms of music production this is a major problem as compatibility has been lost with many pro-grade soundcards for the MacBook such as the MOTU 828. Its also bad news for video people as well.

At the moment I am not sure what to suggest; the MacBook Pro is more expensive and is bigger mmm I will have a think.
