I couldn't believe I would one day say&do this. Have been through enough Apple launches where new features and omissions initially didn't make sense, but as soon as I tried the product and played around with it a little they grew on me and eventually seemed the new normal. Not so with the new Macbook Pro. Having used it for 4 days I can say with confidence that -- while it is a sleek device with a gorgeous screen -- I'm going to have to return what I got and learn to appreciate the competition. A list of things that have bothered the heck out of me: -- The lack of Macsafe is far more frustrating than I imagined. I miss the ease of plugging it in when I'm on the sofa, compared to the frustrating shoving with the USB-C. It's also really hard to remove at times! It also protrudes more and is less...safe. Also I have to get rid of all my old chargers... -- The lack of a port for my displays. Just thought Thunderbolt/MDP had been established as the norm and now I can't use my three home and work displays without dongles? And there isn't even one from Apple offering 4k@60Hz. Crazy. -- The lack of SD card slot. I use my MBP while on trips and excursions with the family. I put the SD card in all the time to offload things and check photos/videos I've taken. I can't do this with a dongle. I also can't transfer with a USB cable because it's too slow and hell that's another dongle to keep track off! -- The lack of dedicated USB ports for charging my devices like my phone. -- No 32 GB option. Ridiculous. What's so infuriating about the lack of ports is that it wasn't necessary for Apple to omit these for the sake of slimming the laptop down. The tapering is so excessive (all in the name of showing off, not practical design) that significant height real estate got lost. That's not a good argument for omitting arguably one of the most important features of a personal computer -- connections.
