iBooks are not Pro machines. iBooks are designed primarily for the
student and consumer market. Powerbooks are designed for the
professional market. One thing is for sure. Apple does not have any
problem with cutting out un-needed features for 90% of their market.
If 10% of iBook users are relying on Firewire it is a lot easier to
migrate them to powerbooks than it is to overcharge the other 90%.
