Why the new Macbook annoyed thousands of people

When Apple released the new MacBook, they made many big improvements but it’s the parts they stripped out that are making the headlines. Apple removed the MagSafe 2 charging port type, the HDMI port, the SD card slot, the Thunderbolt 2 ports (which you probably never used) and they remarkably killed off the standard USB port. All these ports, which power data transfer and charging for most everything you likely use, have been replaced by four Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, meaning you now need to buy adapters to plug in your existing devices! This isn’t a cool move by Apple but they can say that they’ve done this because the other devices are likely to catch up soon and change has to happen sometime, so why not now? Well, for the most part, devices are still using standard USBs to charge or perform tasks, and having to add an adapter straight onto your new shiny Mac isn’t too cool in our eyes!
