I am thinking, first of all regarding ports. A usb dongle (no cable) with sd card, wouldn't take far more space than if the laptop came with a sd card slot. I never owned an Apple laptop, but from pictures I have seen, only a part of the sd card fits inside the slot anyway. I have a non apple laptop and when I plug in an sd card, almost all of it goes inside. If that was the original case with the apple laptops, I could see the problem being far greater. going for all USB type C ports can mean that one has to either get the so called dongles for hdmi, etc, or, if they exist, get cables that are for example Type C to HDMI, or Type C to type B, etc. Basically no need for dongles, just new cables. Don't get me wrong, that's not free, but in the long run...is it really that big of an issue if you are going to spend thousands on a laptop anyway? The keyboard, now I admit I almost never use the keyboard on any laptop I own because I have an external keyboard, always. I don't want to damage the laptop, spill anything on it, or just regular dirty, hair, etc. I assume that no one wants to type on a laptop keyboard for long periods of time anyway, or am I wrong? The RAM limit. Now that is definitely something which I can see myself having an issue with. 16GB is fine for most tasks, but if you want to do some heavy work, you want more, at least 32GB. This is an issue. My main laptop (non Apple) has 32GB and I wouldn't go back to anything less. What about all the previous versions of Macbooks, are there previous or current models with 32GB as an option? Ever? I am not giving an excuse to Apple, as I said I want 32GB too, I am just trying to see this a bit more objectively. I do hope they give the option for 32GB in 2017. The touch bar/lack of function keys. I can see the coolness factor of it, though I doubt I would ever use it. As I mentioned earlier I don't want to use the keyboard of a laptop, so I don't see myself using just the touch bar either. I wish the 15" had the option for a touch bar LESS built too. I could save that 300-400. I wouldn't mind seeing Apple releasing an external keyboard with a touch bar, as long as they keep the function keys. The huge trackpad...as before, I don't use them, I prefer external solutions, mouse. I don't know how so many people who claim they can do serious work, including video editing, do it, but...so be it! The CPU/GPU. For me they are fine. I have experience the need for speed and getting the fastest out there, back in the 80s, 90s and 2000s. I am over it. I rather wait a bit more, I don't care. The price. I don't like it. The reason I don't like it is because I am paying (if I ever get one of these) for a touchbar I will not use. Ever. If there was an offer for a touchbar less 15 inch, with the appropriate price reduction, I would reconsider, even though the RAM limitation is very annoying. Just my random thoughts.
