Apple So, Apple held its usual autumn press get-together just now, and after a few rather uninspiring ones (to me, at least), they finally managed to blow me away, with the new MacBook Air (especially the 11.6" variant). They also gave a sneak peek at Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which has... An App Store. An App Store Apple is going to open on Snow Leopard within 90 days.

It could just be shaped the same and use a completely different electrical connection.
Much as Dell did with the Mini 9 which has a Mini-PCIe-shaped custom SATA(?) connector/SSD setup.

Is they want to go back to a prietary PROM(though EFI is arguably just that...), that's not too horrible. It's what people have been dealing with forever: a bloated, annoying BIOS.
This one at least kind of _has_ to get out of the way when you start a real OS...
