[Andy Field] "sadly i (and i would guest most of us) have a bucket load of regular old drives with client projects to constantly update."

Do you still expect Macs to include Firewire or SCSI? At what point can old technology go away? At what point to the find keeping such ports impacts overall hardware development when all that's needed is an adaptor. What about new purchasers who don't need all the legacy? At what point do you migrate stuff on older drives as needed.

I use a "drive dock" and put "raw" drives in it and copy over things as needed.

For older drives in cases, I've occasionally pulled them apart so I don't have to deal with a bunch of older technology and just work with my drive dock.

It's actually very easy to connect anything from Firewire to flavors of USB to Thunderbolt but I really don't need a mess of cables when I go somewhere as I don't carry old enclosed drives with me.

And the new MacPro certainly has reasonable connectivity, much more so than a MBP.
