Yes there is. Different model, also with touchid
Hey look what was released today? Another M1 Mac with....count em....2 TB ports. Not 4. 2. It even has 2 more USB-C ports, making the decision to limit it even more obvious and deliberate.

Still think those MacBook Pros are going to have 4 TB ports? Lololol

Yeah, this seems to be an M1 limitation, however we're not waiting for M1 Macs to have more ports but for M1X and up Macs or whatever they want to call the higher-end processors to do.

Its just logical that the higher-end MacBook Pro's, iMac's and Mac Pro will have at least double the IO, as they always have.

Yes i do. Because they Are not going to use the same die as the low-end iMac, low-end 13” MBP, low-end Mac mini, and MBA.

can you post a link or pic I didn't see the new model (with TouchID) in an extended keyboard format? (and yes there's a Magic keyboard—but without TouchID)

MIa Copa! I missed it in the top of the article. (reading skills LOL)

If they used faceid there would be no need for sticking with apple keyboard. Maybe it is intentional to keep touch id?

Magic Keyboard with no backlight, iPad Pro with only one USB-C port, Apple TV with no USB port to connect external HDDs, thank you Apple, those are good excuses for me to not buy them and save my money!

Really bummed they won't work with older Macs.

I routinely use my MacBook Pro with an external display. The MBP is off to the side and I use a separate keyboard and mouse. TouchID is a little annoying to use because I have to reach over quite a bit to reach it. This would've been super convenient.

Likewise, it would've been neat to add TouchID to the MacMini in my office (which is an Intel Mac).
