A gold MacBook with just ONE USB port? Apple, you're DRUNK

They didn't remove the port power, they used a new capability of USB-C. Every laptop will use USB-C for charging by end of next year, so you'll have the same charger for every laptop. Isn't that a good thing? Having only one port is a separate issue, as I said elsewhere here I think they should have included a traditional USB port because currently 0% of USB sticks are USB-C and it would be annoying to have to carry around an adapter.

Though I think adapter cables/dongles will become quite common in the next couple years, as we'll start seeing USB-C USB sticks and other USB gear, so all those who lack USB-C ports will need the adapters to go in the other direction.
