Question I have read the pro uses the thunderbolt port which I thought I read transfers at 40gbps? (Correct me if I am wrong?) I have read I think the MacBook uses a standard transfer of 5gbps. Big difference but in real world scenarios does have it been a huge hinderance for anyone? I prefer the MacBooks size and might be transferring date in the future, and I might also be backing up iPhones to the laptop which would be a heck of a lot faster on the MacBook vs. the pro. --- Post Merged, May 19, 2018 --- And I am guessing the transfer speeds will boil down to minutes vs. seconds.
