    The issues most people have with this is that Apple had the nerve increase the price, limit expansion of memory, use older cpus (some of this on intel), and exclude any sort of transitional adapter (e.g., usbc-to-usb, usbc-to-displayport). Apple usually keeps its arrogance on adapters and charges too much (but you should never buy directly from them anyway), seeing the price drops last week pretty much tells the story. They went a bit too far without getting a sense of what creative professionals would actually want to upgrade to.

    I don't need a new machine, but I really hope to see some sort of care for the creative sector in the near-future, when it is time to buy a new machine. It's not just for its looks, but ecosystem and stability that keeps me locked in.
