It occurred to me that the resale value of this generation of MacBook Pros might not be the same as with past generations. Best case scenario: Apple will learn it's lesson and add slots and macsafe back in next summer, along with reduced pricing and better upgrade options including RAM. Famous analyst Kuo has already confirmed that this is the case. Then resale value of this failed shortlived generation will be low. Worst case scenario: Apple decides to go down this illogical customer unfriendly dongle-for-everything-including-charging-your-iphone path with future versions of the MacBook Pros, despite Kuo's predictions. in that case resale value will be even worse, since longtime loyal Apple users will have been forced to switch ecosystems, as I am in the process of doing right now. Thoughts welcome!
