Why I just bought a MacBook Air instead of the new Pro

Next iteration, the whole market will have switched to USB-C. You won't find a decent laptop from any manufacturer with legacy USB.

It's not an Apple-thing, it's an Intel-thing. It comes with their reference-chipsets etc.

Magsafe had to go because of that. But no-one else has it either - so what's the point?

SD-card readers - who has them these days?

The new Apple laptops are a long bet, for a future that is all wireless.
