Honestly, I can't understand what everyone is upset about. I agree these computers are expensive, but if you buy a well-spec'ed one it should last you at least 3-4 years. I would always just get the SSD-size I need from Apple, and wouldn't remove it unless it was being replaced by Apple anyway. The size/build and color options of the computer are better. USB-C is exactly what I've been waiting for, because from time to time I needed 3x USB3 ports on my current rMBP. This gives much more flexibility. The processors will obviously be bumped up next year, probably alongside 32GB of RAM. You can just wait 9-12 months and buy then. Yes, the ESC key being gone is weird but not the end of the world. ... I do miss MagSafe, but what is actually wrong? It seems like everything is exactly on-par with what I expected/hoped for. My only annoying costs: 1 x extra AC adapter for my work bag Third-party replacement USB-C cables for my external devices from Monoprice or whatever. (cheap, who cares!) A new USB-C Ethernet adapter instead of my current Thunderbolt one. (not expensive) ... That's a small price to pay to have everything be more universal. Seems fine. What's up?
