I notice on the new Macbook Pros, there are usb 3.0 ports but no firewire 800 ports.  Perhaps this is old news...  I am about to buy a backup drive and was leaning towards the WD My Passport Portable for mac.  This drive has two firewire 800 ports and one usb 2.0.  I will likely upgrade my macbook pro in the next couple years so if firewire 800 will not be around, it looks like I need to find a usb 3.0 drive instead.  Can anyone comment on this?
