Re: 1 USB port? Seriously?
If they take the pictures videos (and movies?) on an iPhone or iPad, it is already on their new MacBook.
If they process their pictures and videos (and movies) on their stationary iMac, then they again have them on their new MacBook.
This is an light portable notebook after all. If your usage is more tethered and requires connecting to legacy peripherals, then Apple still sells (just refreshed) the Air and Pro models for you. Use the right tool for the job and you will always have good results.
