There's been a changing of the guard in Apple's laptop line-up. While the new MacBook Pro models sporting Intel's Haswell chips now lead Apple's portable PC range, there's been a casualty along the way. The 15-inch MacBook Pro with optical disc drive is no more. Enjoy your moment in the limelight Haswell MacBook Pros -- this will one day be your fate too.

It's been on the cards since Apple introduced the Retina MacBook Pros, sans disc drive, last year. Those looking to pop their Buffy DVDs into their MacBook Pros will now have to turn their attentions to the 13-inch MacBook Pro without Retina starting at £999. It's either that or hunt around for a Mac-compatible external disc drive.
