Ok, I keep seeing all of these comments on this forum and other places with people, practically in rage over the new macbook. I cannot tell you how many times people have said something to this extent "Thinner and lighter does not replacing having necessary ports, I would rather have more ports and better battery life than some super thin computer". And that got me thinking. Apple should do just that. Make a computer thats a little bit thicker, has more connections. And maybe around 12 hours of battery life. Maybe they could call it the macbook air? Wouldn't that be a pipe dream. Seriously people??? I think people are concerned about apple going this way with all of their laptops, but the truth is, they ain't. They updated the macbook pro and the airs. Do you really think that apple went to all that trouble to develop thunderbolt, just to get rid of it? No, the pro is here to stay. But its going to be the "big hoss" laptop. I would also like to point out a few things to everyone who feels like the Usb C is a disaster. 1. Nobody in their right mind, is going to carry that computer around out of a bag or sleeve. If you have a bag, you have room for that tiny little adaptor. Nobody complains about carrying around a power supply, and this one is lighter than any supply before. I should also point out, if you need to plug in your hard drive, then you are already carrying around that. Just leave your hard drive connected to your adaptor. 2. If apple felt like this was what everyone wanted, they would have discontinued the other notebooks. 3. And no, most people don't need all of those connections. Anyone who needs thunderbolt and multiple usb ports, is clearly somebody who is going to need more than a Core M processor anyway. Just my little rant, but seriously. The world is not ending.........Yet! EDIT: I should also add that using a universal connection (USB-C) also is going to allow limitless possibilities for this notebook. Heck its low power usage will allow for some fairly inexpensive battery packs or solar powered options. You can go camping with this thing, and not worry about power.
