Tim Cook has tried to reassure everyone that there will be “great” new desktops from Apple. The big question, of course, is what will those desktops be? Apple has focused more and more on portable computing, and desktops have been largely neglected. The MacBook has become their mainstay in the PC world. So what can we expect? I don’t know, but I am allowed to guess (and I’m allowed to be wrong, too).
Okay, I’m going to go over this again: of all the flaws in the new MacBook Pro, going all Thunderbolt 3/USB-C wasn’t one of them. The overreaction to “all those dongles”, or “living in dongle hell” has gone beyond stupid. There is plenty to complain about in the new machine. The whole “all those dongles” thing isn’t one of them. The cost? Well, I can get behind that. The number of parts? Sorry, total crap.
