A handful of users within the discussion forums claimed that they regretfully returned their new MacBooks shortly after receiving one because of those compromises, including the frustration of looking for and purchasing USB-C adapters that are needed to connect various Digital AV, VGA or USB devices, peripherals and cables to the single USB-C port on the ultra-slim notebook.
…After spending a day trying to hunt down USB-C adapters in Apple stores (weren’t available at Best Buy, where I bought mine), I got to thinking about what I loved and what I didn’t.
…The two reasons I ultimately returned it were that the keyboard didn’t agree with me and, after some practical thinking, I realized that there were going to be issues managing using two laptops concurrently.
…Most of the programs I use a lot are limited to two installations, and keeping track of what is activated on which laptop presented possibilities like taking one of them on a trip having forgotten to deactivate/sign out on the other one, which could be a real problem.”
Not all early adopters of the new MacBook have been disappointed, however, with many other users pleased with the notebook’s ultra-thin and lightweight design, high-resolution Retina display, fanless architecture, all-day battery life, Force Touch trackpad, redesigned keyboard with butterfly mechanism, portability and more.
…If Apple can manage to combine the performance of a MacBook Air with the feature set of the 12-inch MacBook, with a matching or lower than $1,299 entry-level price point, the notebook will be an even more attractive product for prospective buyers in the future.
