Re: New iMac. I'm not so sure this time.

Not having an optical drive removed capability in my opinion.  It is one of the reasons I bought a refurbished 2011 iMac direct from Apple today.  Plus I saved a few hundred dollars.  While it may be true that DVD/CD media may soon be a thing of the past, I still use these.  My car does not have an iPod adapter and I still listen to music using a tube amplifier, giant Klipsch speakers and yes, a CD player.  Not to mention the scores of digital images I have backed up to DVDs as well as some software programs I run.

And, the convenience of a built in drive and SD card slot means two less expernal devices and cables hanging off my machine. Less clutter is better.  The new iMac sure looks slick but would only keep the clutter I'm trying to ditch by swithing from PC to Apple.
