I won't dispute that the Apple hardware doesn't meet your needs but I wouldn't call it obsolete. (And I think it's just crazy that Apple doesn't offer a Blu Ray drive yet.) I think you have some valid points.

But Apple doesn't offer "turn key" solutions on laptops and they don't offer things like built in card readers on any of their computers. I'm not sure they could cram a card reader (or extra hard drives) into the MacBook Pro current case design. They don't even offer analog modems, except as an add on, anymore.

So I wouldn't expect to see Apple offer a photographer's laptop per se. The biggest issue though, in my mind, is the OS. Vista Sux. Lenovo's box would a lot more alluring if it ran something else.
