    macbook pro advice

    i'm currently in the market for a MacBook pro so my 2014 MacBook air and 2011 iMac can be cascaded through the family. i see that the latest models no longer have magsafe or usb ports. is this as much of a massive inconvenience as i think it will be?

    Not really. Personally I liked magsafe, but the USB-C is OK and becoming more common.
    Adapters are easily available.
    There can only be 11 and I'm one.

    MagSafe was very clever - a shame it’s discontinued.

    I thought the USB-C only was a bit of a pain, TBH.

    Make sure you give the keyboard a thorough test - It isnt a patch on the previous models for action (or longevity, I reckon).

    Dont bother with their extended AppleCare - you get 2yrs under UK consumer law anyway.
    If I am ever on life support - Unplug me......
    Then plug me back in..........

    See if that works .....

    The usb-c pulls out very easily. Probably why they discontinued the magsafe.
