How Apple is loosing me as a customer :-/

This 2015 MacBook seriously? Yes, the 12″ form factor is exactly my sweet spot since I search for the perfect laptop.

However, it is 2015, and yes I need more than one USB/charging port. As I said on Twitter:

Since the initial, first gen MacBook Air: Are two USB ports too much to ask for a over thousand dollar machine? And now it is even shared with the power supply! ?!?!? :-/

And did I mention it is 2015? I want to connect a HiDPI 4k display at home or in the office. Because, you know, I need to get work done, …

Thanks but no thanks. I stick to the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 then, or grab a Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook. Because you know: they got USB ports, and a pretty HiDPI display, too ;-)

Update: It is also a slap in the face how short the Thunderbolt lifespan was. Thanks god I did not invest into a single proprietary Thunderbolt device. The only thing I got here was one cable for fast Mac backup, restore, and archive test booting, … puh! Oh wait, wrong, I got a Thunderbolt Ethernet adapter. As you know, Macs do not come with proper, fast wired Ethernet for some time, requiring all kind of adapter clutter to be added left and right, … :-/
