The new MacBook: I hope you like dongles
There is one refrain that, for the last few years, always pops up at Apple events: thinness. Through magical material, design, and manufacturing advances, Apple keeps making its devices thinner. That’s why it always amuses me when people slot the 6.9mm-thick iPhone 6 into a chunky case that completely counters Apple’s advances. As Phil Schiller unveiled the new MacBook yesterday, a similar thought came to mind: If you buy a MacBook, the svelte silhouette of your new laptop might be ruined by a bunch of dongles.
