    Would you rather have a macbook pro with 3 usb ports and no SD card slot, or keep the current configuration of 2 usb ports and a SD card slot.

    Not a rumor, just a thought I had, wondered what other people are thinking.

    I would vote 'none of the above'.

    It's fine as it is.

    I think that apple should take the SuperDrive out of the cMBP and have it come standard with a SSD and a hdd. They should keep all of the ports on the left that are there and then add a coupe USB ports and a thunderbolt port on the other side.

    Oh, you're right there's actually an SD card. :D

    Guess I still haven't woken up.

    I would prefer more USB 3.0 ports as I do not really use the SD card reader. My camera uses CF so I have to carry a USB 3.0 card reader.

    That's be great. The MacBook Pro with 6 Thunderbolt and 12 USB ports. :p

    2 is enough, at home i just plug in a usb hub if i want more..
    on my alienware i have 4 USB 3 ports and still only use 3.
    keyboard and mouse from apple are wireless so no usb needed.
    and wired keyboard had 2 port hub so you win a port there.

    Remember that the theoretical max for SDXC is 2TB and current speeds are approaching that of 5400rpm HDDs. The way Apple is moving towards proprietary flash storage, the SD port will soon be the only cost efficient way to "upgrade" MBP storage capacity.

    Weird voting question because it doesn't even say USB-C or USB-A. But as far as the SD card slot, by all means, yes, keep it! No matter what!

    These posts are from 2012. USB-C didn't even exist back then.

    I don't care. One of my camera systems uses a CF, the other SD. So I carry an card reader that handles both.

    But I would prefer a USB C with 3.1 speed.

    LOL boom that is hilarious. We might need a few more polls, then, to bump down this cruft? Or maybe it's just amusing that what goes around, comes around. ;)

    I want an IO board, that is not integrated into the logic board. So if a headphone cable gets jammes or if a usb port stops working for whatever reason, it can just be replaced.

    Honestly, I'd buy a brand new 17-inch MacBook Pro right with Touchbar, 4 USB ports, 1 Thunderbolt, 1 FW800 and a Magsafe connector for $4,000. That is the MBP I wan't.

    I can't even tell if my laptop is charging, It's pathetic. Why is the goal to be the thinnest and the lightest, rather than the most powerful and expansive?
