ASK DN: Would you get the new MacBook?

    Absolutely no, but largely because I'm immensely confused by the USB-C port. Does it mean you can only have one peripheral plugged in at one time? Does it mean you can't have a second screen (not that the internal GPU seems like it would have the power to run 2 screens) or even a USB memory stick plugged in at the same time as the charger?

    That's my biggest concern, but it's also hideously underpowered considering the price tag - you could by the 13" RMBP for the same money and end up with a far better system.

    To me, it seems more like a fashion accessory than a computer.
