If not mistaken the indicative price was RM4,4xx previously now up to RM4,769 after GST. And I don't think I can get used to having just one port for everything so I'll skip biggrin.gif

Might as well get the Macbook Air compared to this. Mayb in the future when it has 2 USB-C Ports or if USB-C ports become the norm only can consider the get it.

What's nice about this Macbook is that you get 256GB storage. Pay the same amount for the latest Macbook Pro and you only get 128GB storage! biggrin.gif

But you get more features, more ports, much better performance with only the sacrifice of portability.

Depend on personal usage, some may opt for Macbook Pro lowest model instead of this new Macbook.
I was considering to get this Macbook at first but end up ordering the Macbook Pro, as I feel too many compromises I'll need to make do for this Macbook. With the price we need to pay, it's not worth it (to me at least).

Thing is you're not only sacrificing portability, but you're sacrificing storage space - by half! biggrin.gif

But that said if I had to make a choice I'd probably choose the same as you. I can already picture it in my mind on how annoyed I would be coz of the lack of ports.

Indeed.... sweat.gif
Pricing is the main issue here, based on internal news seems like Apple will charge USD250 for CPU upgrade to 5Y71 1.3GHz which is pure profit for Apple as Intel charges the same price for all Core M doh.gif mad.gif
