Jeffrey slices and dices a fellow Mac lover, John Martellaro:
What if I need five USB-C ports? See how Apple is callous and manipulative? They’re forcing me to pay extra money for a hub that comes with all kinds of extra ports– just like the MacBook Air customer (who doesn’t want to pay the professional level price for pro features) who absolutely positively needs more ports.
This is a non-issue. A much ado about not much. John’s idea of a mobile MacBook user is one who has an external display, an external keyboard, an external Time Machine drive, a USB printer, and wired Ethernet connection.
Does that sound like an average MacBook Air user to you?
