Apple’s new MacBook Pro gets rid of a lot of legacy ports, most notably the removal of the USB ports, which means that you will need a lot of dongles and adapters to regain that connectivity.
A lot of customers and reporters have criticized this move and rightly so, buying most of these cables for full connectivity would cost around £230, which goes on top of the already expensive price for a MacBook Pro that is £1,749.99 with the TouchBar.
In order to try to win some people over, Apple is hosting a sale of its USB-C adapters from October 27th to December 31st, which isn’t really a solution, but should help.
Here are the full price discounts (we are unsure why Apple doesn’t seem to understand the exchange rate):
- USB-C to USB Adapter – (from £19/$19) £9/$9
- Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter – (from £49/$49) £29/$29
