This is an amazing article with excellent points! I want to reinforce how “dumb” the dongle issue is. In architecture school, grad level students need powerful laptops. Usually i7 with 16 or preferably 32 ram. Adobe graphics, renderings and vector drawings can make any laptop slow, crash or get very hot. We also transfer a lot of data from laptop to laptop using flash drives. We give presentations using an HDMI cable or a VGA one. We use SD cards to transfer photos of our models. We even use cooling pads and multiple monitors. Most importantly, even if not obvious, we use comfortable mouses that are almost always wired (you don’t wanna run out of batteries while working). All the lack of connectivity to the Mac Book Pro is a deal breaker. Not one of my friends that I’ve talked to, both in architecture, graphic art or especially photo will make the switch. Some will make the switch to the Surface Studio though.
