This is why I just got the 2015 MacBook Pro. College students can't keep waiting like this. And also it'll probably have USB-C ports, which will be a downfall until USB-C is widespread (will require adapters for a while). I'm happy with my MPB
So it's being replaced by a more expensive laptop with lower specs and only one port (requiring hauling around an expensive adapter, reducing portability). Brilliant, Apple. Thinness > functionality, apparently.
