Apple has discontinued its non-Retina legacy MacBook Pro, the last Mac it sold with a built-in CD/DVD drive. The 13-inch notebook had not been updated since June 2012, but it remained available for purchase on Apple's website for $1,099 until today.
Apple continues to sell a standalone SuperDrive for $79 that connects with a traditional USB cable. As with the 12-inch MacBook, a dongle would be needed to use the SuperDrive with new MacBook Pros that have switched to USB-C ports.

Now for the same configuration I would have to pay more than double the price for the new MacBooks! Would have Retina, new processor and touchbar but still not worth the hefty price raise!
The prices on the new machines are silly. They LOVE making them so hard to upgrade now too. I'm also in the school of being frustrated with the removal of the headphone jack on the iPhone 7.
Things at Apple are moving in the wrong direction. Ive and Phil need to go. I know people will beat me to death for that comment, though I don't care. I really enjoyed Apple products because they were great, worked well and delivered what customers wanted. Today things are buggy, need 10 different adapters and they are pushing customers to change when it's not needed (don't give me the stupid CD ROM excuse).
My humble opinions.
Vote NO on 15!
