Re: No optical drive for new iMac? Opportunity!
I specifically bought the last 17" over the new 15" retina due to the loss of an optical drive, among some other things. As far as laptops go, it is about portability. I don't want to carry an extra piece of equipment. Not including them on desktops seems even weirder considering how easy it is to use CD's as a backup and distribution media. I bet alot of people will be buying an attachable optical drive.
