I took the plunge and purchased a new MacBook Pro over the weekend. Got one of the new 2018 models, with True Tone and the T2 chip. Got it pretty much maxed out with memory, 1TB SSD.
Love the display, speed and overall heftability. It also looks pretty. Clearly it is a great upgrade in so many ways.
Downside. Dongletown. Not at all fussed on the need to go and buy dongles that should be on board, such as an SD card slot. A single SD slot would be all that I need to raise this machine from very happy to best I love you.
Also, I miss MagSafe. Just saying.
I am pretty sure I am going to be very happy with this machine, and will grow to adapt to Dongletown.
