Lets laugh

What's there to laugh at?

Now you have one port for everything, rather than like 2 USB ports, 1 headphone jack, 1 mic, 1 HDMI slot, 1 VGA slot, 1 SD card, 1 Micro SD card, 1 charging port, 1 disc drive, 1 USB port. It's a waste of space.

Also 1 port looks better than many ports.

No ports for on the go mode, but have a little port hub for if i need it.

the one hub, add on ports is a great idea.

the overwhelming majority of laptops these days don't support docks the way you're thinking of (the 90's and early 00's era dock that locks a laptop in).

I interned at MSR over the summer and they issued me a Thinkpad Carbon X1 or whatever. The "dock", such as it was, is just a USB hub. That's great, but it's fundamentally the same idea as Apple uses with the Macbook in the OP.

If anything, a dock connecting by USB port means that I don't need to worry if the "dock"ing mechanism will work with my next laptop.

It's unfortunate that the Macbook has one port. I wouldn't have designed it that way and I wouldn't buy it if I was in the market for a new laptop. But in this one instance, the idea of a single peripheral that plugs into the laptop that gives you Micro/SD ports, USB, charging, etc... is a good move.

I wish it had Ethernet, but I have niche needs for ethernet.
>>
>>52284531
It's weird that it only has the one USB-C port. I mean, it's obvious why - no native USB 3.1 in the Intel Skylake chipset - but it's still silly. Hopefully the Kaby Lake refresh chipset fixes that: I gather AMD's chipsets for Zen will.

is 3.1 highly superior to 3.0 ?
At first I thought Type C is only 3.1, so that was something over the 3.0, but if Type C can be on both, how much better is the 3.1 ?

Type C can even be 2.0. See 90% of phones with type c.

Eh, I thought type c was revolutionary
Well I guess them being reversible is pretty good improve over the Micro USB too
Phones should start using it faster, even if 2.0, it seems like a much better connector than micro USB

I have a 128GB flash drive on my keychain. Have had it for at least 6 months (I had a 16GB flash drive for several years before it).

I used neither of them more than once in the last 3 years. I study CS and use multiple computers every day - my home setup is actually two computers (one laptop and one desktop that drives a few 4k monitors), so it's not for lack of opportunity.

I'm not saying nobody anywhere ever uses flash drives, but Apple made a bet that there are lots of consumers who won't mind not being able to transfer data from one flash drive to another, and I think that wasn't an insane bet for them to make.

If you want to illustrate the limitations that a single port introduces, this is such a weak one to choose that I'm just now realizing I might've missed that you were joking. Were you?

>>52284611
OR, you could plug 1 hub into 1 port while still having 5 other ports. Why do you need to be restricted to 1 port in order to use a hub?

So you don't have to plug each individual thing on each port of the hub? Nice magic device you have there. All you're doing is adding up a useless step AND charging for it.

So it's either you buy an adaptor for the Mac or a docking station for anything else....

Don't really think your helping the side your arguing for shlomo
>>
I used to get pissed off at the existence of the MacBook, but now that I think about it I'll never buy one and other people who do aren't my concern as long as they don't try to force me to use the thing. There will always be systems for those of us who need more.
>>
When I come home I plug in power, keyboard, mouse, 2 monitors and headphones in my laptop. On the go I never used any of the ports. Honestly one port with an adapter would work for me and I would even prefer it...

are we going to compare the amount of effort it takes to align and press down a laptop versus plug in a USB cable?

because this is real high level shit if that's the case.
>>
>>52290149
A docking station is pretty much the same thing as an adapter. Just more plastic. My points is, one port is enough if you have a docking station/adapter. In return you get amazing mobility. I'm glad Apple released the MacBook so I can pick up a single port Windows laptop in one or two years when everyone plays catch up.

I can't use usb with my phone even though the hardware supports it because charging ports are used heavily and get the shit kicked out of them and aren't reliable enough for data.
