Re: No optical drive for new iMac? Opportunity!

lack of an optical drive sounds bad. but I remember even as a gamer I can download everything I play and infact installing from optical means a longer update time.

Going to guess though it might be a good idea to make a backup of OSX to a bootable USB key.

I prefer bootable USB keys and FW800 drives to optical media, they boot faster and some of my Macs no longer have optical (to support 2 drives mix/match of SSD and HDD).
