It's really a sad situation because I am a perfect example of someone that this lack of firewire hurts. My work has multiple firewire mass storage devices that I need access to. My iBook is getting very old now and I was excited to upgrade to the new MacBook but this will keep me from being able to. I can't really afford a MacBook Pro nor do I want the increased 15" screen size (footprint.) The adapters (firewire to USB) are garbage and not reliable. If you've never tried LARGE file transfers using one, you won't know what I'm talking about. Anyway, now I'm stuck to look for a nice used previous MacBook. :(

Never mind, I thought we were talking about the Macbook Pro but we aren't. Still why not USB to firewire adapter?

Can I ask the obvious question: Why don't you just get an adapter for the Firewire 800?

Firewire doesn't belong on the macbook air. The macbook however i can understand (though i have no firewire periferals for my 1st gen macbook)
