Is it because Apple wanting us to spend more money on larger SSD models?
Lol? No....than you would buy an external HDDs and that can't be stopped unless they go retro and add USB 1.0 ports? Or lose all the ports except for the mag safe 2 and headphone jack?
SD cards are slow. Not even a substitution for a USB 5400RPM HDD.
I'd be more concerned about getting rid of MagSafe and going pure USB-C. You'd have adapters hanging from it like a weeping willow whenever you want to do anything. Seems like an accident waiting to happen.
...because Apple now sees it as a waste of space as they "shrink" the size of the MacBook Pro even further.
Standalone card readers are cheaper and perhaps faster.
We'll probably see a lot of USB-C docks with a card reader built in.
Apple will continue to increase the size of the base unit's SSD drives. My guess is the new MacBook Pro 13 will have a base unit with 256 GB at the same price as the current 128 GB unit. And hopefully the 15 inch goes to 512 GB as a base.
Pro users need both space and speed in their storage.
I am more concerned about losing the HDMI port than the SD port. Most cameras today can be plugged right into the Mac with a USB cable.
USB C to HDMI adapter cable is $15 or so on Amazon.
I don't want to lose the magsafe connector.... I can live without the SD card port.

Wave byebye to MagSafe -- looks like it's going to be gone as a power-supply paradigm in future MacBooks...
You know - I'm waiting for the new rMBP but if I have to deal with losing the MagSafe and dealing with USB-C instead of TB2 and the damn soft keys - I just may get a 2015 instead.
