Interesting points there. Here’s my perspective.
I am a designer and a musician. A better screen is very welcome and a super fast SSD will open even huge music projects virtually instantly. And speaking of dongles, I have insane number of cords, connections and wiring for my music production, so I’ll be honest — one small dongle means nothing to me.
One more dongle will be such a huge pain, SURE.
ps: photo by Ableton. I have a similar setup but with even more wires.
