Five reasons why Apple’s new MacBook Pro makes me want to switch back to Windows | ZDNet

One of the features that drew me to the MacBook Pro in the first place was the MagSafe connector. I always saw the power ports on laptops as a weak point, and combined with my “more bull than ballerina” approach to handling my gear, the idea of a port that would allow the cable to detach before breaking something was compelling.

Sure, there are dongles that go some way to helping, but this feels like a really clumsy solution. Five reasons why Apple’s new MacBook Pro makes me want to switch back to Windows | ZDNet
