Re: you are not alone
I have a 2015 MacBook Pro Retina 15" 16/512 Gb machine. It is fabulous, however when I looked at the latest MBP I see nothing that would attract me.
The last MBP lasted 8 years and now my daughter has it. Not that I would upgrade as I want this one to last an age. The iPhone I have is a 5, it and the computer 'talk' to each other nicely without the need for any kind of dongles.
I thought the idea was Apple et al were going wireless but there seems to be a huge need for dongles of all descriptions to do what we can do donglelessly now.
This is my last Apple computer, I'll look at a Linux machine if I have to change as they're a fraction of the price. Apple design is impressive, but they're a bridge too far for me now.
Yes, for me, they've lost the plot. Prices in UK are now ridiculous too which just makes it worse.
