Is it too soon to say goodbye to CDs and DVDs? Not according to Apple. They’re retiring the optical drive from the Mac Mini.
Apple updated some of its computers last week. The MacBook Air and the Mac Mini both got significant processor upgrades and the addition of Thunderbolt ports. While the additions are interesting, it’s something that was removed that is especially telling.
It’s not the MacBook, though Apple did quietly retire its trusty old laptop from service, leaving just the Air and the Pro in the MacBook range. What’s gone is the optical drive on the Mac Mini. Shane Richmond/The Telegraph.
