That will not happen. It'd make the machine more useful RIGHT NOW instead of 2 years in the future (when the machine in itself will be obsolete). Dongledongledongle! --- Post Merged, Jan 8, 2017 --- You fail to realize SD card slot was an inexpensive way to increase the absurdly expensive on-board storage in previous versions? I never ejected my JetDrive, I used an external reader when I needed to transfer pictures from the camera. I did love the ability to add 256GB of storage without paying $1000 extra for it. Even now I'd love to have more, but not at the prices they are asking for in the new MBProprietary.
