I can’t say I was overjoyed or over-impressed with the latest MacBook Pro laptops. The look is great (I love space grey on a laptop) and the touch bar has a lot of interesting possibilities. Unfortunately, there are some big drawbacks (for me): The pricing is a mess (compare a 13″ MacBook Pro and 13″ MacBook Air, it’s nuts) and the ports. I’m all for moving technology forward and ditching ports in order to advance adoption. But I need a “crossover” machine. As a kid, I distinctly remember my father buying 3/4 computers in succession: One had a 5 1/4″ floppy drive and nothing else, the next had a 5 1/4″ floppy and the newer 3.5″ floppy drive, the next had a CD-Rom and a 3.5″ floppy but no 5 1/4. The next had only CD-Rom and USB. I had no issue when Apple dropped optical discs, but they did it gradually. Macbook Pros at one point at Firewire 400, Firewire 800 and USB, then Firewire 800, USB and Thunderbolt. I need an intermediary step to help me transition from Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0 to the new Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C. Give me 2 Thunderbolt 2 and 2 Thunderbolt 3. Or even (in a perfect world) a USB 3.0, a Thunderbolt 2 and 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports. Just help me make the transition, especially when there is a wait time on some of Apple’s own adapters for the new MacBook Pro.
