[Marcus Moore] "
USB3 wasn't a thing until after the 2010 MP was released. "

I know product development takes time so you can't just add stuff at the last minute but, IIRC, PCs started showing up with USB 3.0 in '09/'10, and AFAIK there was nothing preventing Apple from adding it or eSATA later if they wanted to (it's not like they don't have a habit of getting first dibs on tech if they want it). They just didn't want to add those features, presumably, because they were focused on the nMP. I wonder if nMP development took longer than they thought it would and that's why they released the meager speed bump in 2012?

[Marcus Moore] " I say this is an anomaly, based on some specific hardware hurdles.

I might be wrong, but that's my thinking."

I hope so but given the path of the MP from 2010 to today I'm not exactly instilled with confidence.
