Are we reading the same thing? I’m seeing it say “With the built-in DisplayPort, drive any monitor up to 4K resolution, and connect a second 4K screen to the other Thunderbolt port.“ --- Post Merged, Jan 12, 2019 --- I had the retina style body you’re referring to. I had a 2013 15 inch retina MacBook Pro and was perfectly happy with it. It worked great and I probably would have kept using it for another 3, 4 or 5 years. Likely until it stopped receiving macOS updates. However, in early 2018 the screen died in it. I took it in and they said it would be almost $800 to fix. It wasn’t worth spending that much to fix a 5 year old laptop IMO so I sold the otherwise working old one for a few hundred bucks on Craigslist and got a new 15 inch MacBook Pro. I personally love the new port setup and would not go back to the way it was. On my desk I have a Thunderbolt 3 dock that allows me to connect, with a single cable, the charger, my 4K monitor, my iPad which I use as a monitor with the Duet Display app, my speakers, Ethernet, an external hard drive, and the dock’s built in SD card slot. If you ask, me that is seriously awesome. In my laptop bag I keep a USB-C hub that has 2 USB-C ports, one of which can pass the power from a charger to the MacBook, 2 USB-A ports, SD card slots, an HDMI port, and a Ethernet port. Have you ever been on a plane or a train and trying to get work done on a laptop with a bunch of peripherals and the charger hooked up, and then need get up to use the bathroom? You’ve either got to unhook everything or finesse the cables going everywhere around you and the tray while you get up. Now I just unhook the hub and move it to the side. I love it. I do understand the frustration some people have. But one day in the near future everything is going to use the USB-C connector and people won’t have nearly as much to complain about.
