A gold MacBook with just ONE USB port? Apple, you're DRUNK


Then, when you realize you have too many "expansion" ports, it is time to look for a better design, because it is by then apparent you goofed.

Most of the "issues" in this particular example are resolved by just a simple powered USB Type-C Hub.

Because USB Type-C is not encumbered by Intel royalties and expensive chips as Thunderbolt is, one could imagine docking stations that incorporate many ports of all kinds and connect with your new MacBook for power and data will be everywhere.

The real test, that this design is good will be in how quickly the "me too" manufacturers will scramble to produce exactly the same computer, but running Windows.
