    when people say that, here’s what I hear: I paid for a bunch of extra stuff that I also have to carry around everywhere just to get the same functionality that came standard in the older models.

      $30 isn’t really much when I spent $3,000 on a computer. I dont love only having USB-C, but I’ll take the trade off for faster data transfer speeds and an overall higher performance computer. Of course I wish there was some USB 3.0/3.1 ports, but it doesn’t make that much of a difference in my day to day.

      My dongle looks good and is always attached to my MacBook, so it doesn’t really feel like I have to carry anything extra around.

      I actually get a big benefit from dongles. When I'm at my desk I'm hooked up to a bunch of peripherals and an external monitor. When I need to bring my laptop to a meeting it now takes just two unplugs to get rid of everything attached instead of multiple different cables that were a huge hassle to unplug and replug every time.
