clumsy me can't even conceive of not having MagSafe. hopefully the new port is up to the task, we will find out in a couple years. I'm probably going to just skip the whole mess and get a 2015 Air to replace my 2012.
It pains me to type it, but as it is probably inevitable, "you're plugging it wrong"
I like how the cable isn't hardwired to the brick, making it expensive to replace when it eventually fails. They can make a MagSafe cable that breaks near the USB-C end leaving it still inside the port.
USB-C designed for durable, the standard with at least 10,000 time insert cycles , in additional testing for accident force apply,
thanks the oval shape and reversible make it not possible to damage the plug and house by mistake (Micro-B is easy damaged by wrong direction insert).
