I have 3 questions pertaining to the new MacBook Pro Retina -
1. Can SSD Hard Drives be Partitioned ?
2. If the need arises, can the mentioned computer be booted from an external FireWire Hard Drive ( i.e. Non-SSD ) ?
3. If I am not mistaken, there is no 3.5mm Audio-In socket - Thus how can one input audio, via Thunderbolt ?
WIll appreciate if the above questions can be answered.
I just received the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display yesterday morning 2.6 GHz with 16 GB of Ram.
Remember when ordering if you want more then 8GB of ram you need to get when ordering because it is soldered to the logic board.
Really unable to answer your questions at this time except the fact this new system has no Firewire port.
You need to purchase a Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter which I think costs around $29.00.
Not sure if they are even on the market yet.
Now it does have USB 3 ports which is supposed to be faster then Firewire, except to the fact I have been having issues.
I have only been able to run at the USB 2.0 speed even though I have USB 3.0 portable hard drives.
Overall the system is great except for this USB 3.0 issue I am having.
