So today I had a big presentation I was giving .... I have yet to receive my MacBook ... So I was using my MBP ... Yesterday while prepping had a situation where I needed an older, fairly large presentation from one of my colleagues, and he handed me a thumb drive ... So I load it on my computer and carry on as normal. Then comes presentation day and I have my trusty VGA cable in hand ready to connect and find out HDMI is the only connection they have available. No sweat since I have one built in to my MBP .... Thinking about some of the hassle or randomness that would have been with the MacBook has me reconsidering whether the difference is practical or not ... Any thought from other "presenters" out there?
