Jobs' reply stated "We don't see USB 3 taking off at this time. No support from Intel, for example." This seems a bit odd considering the price drops on the platform across the board and growing interest. Jobs didn't exactly rule USB 3.0 out completely, but don't expect to see it pop up as an option when configuring your new Mac anytime soon.
