I get by tho. I Had to run out and purchase some bluetooth headphones, and I still use the internal speakers, or hook it up via HDMI.
So basically what I'm saying is it will have the exact effect Apple Corporate wants. Using their near monopoly on the market for spiffy mac portables which have suddenly become trendy, not like the previous 25 years of my fanboi-dom, to force purchases and extract more profits from already stretched thin consumers at the cost of functionality is an unforgivable sin. They've been doing it in their software, and now they do it in their hardware. I'm done with you Apple. I'm putting linux on this mac, I already use linux on my desktop, and I'm never buying another of your products. I hope all readers do the same.
