Why I hate the new MacBook Pro 2016 model

I bought 2015 Retina Macbook pro in 2017 because of all these issues. Why I hate 2016 Macbook pro: The technology offered by the new Macbook pro 206 is not disruptive in any way. They are offering USB C ports and want to push us to that technology. Am I supposed to carry all the dongles and compatibility devices just to plug in all my devices?

I have heard enough from people around me - What a waste of money! Was this necessary at all? Blasphemy! and what not!

Let me digress why I chose a Macbook pro, especially 2015 13inch retina display, and after a week's use, feel I had made a very good decision.

I have had my fair share of experience with all kinds of devices. My first mobile phone was an android device Galaxy pop from Samsung. I loved it for its features. There were tons of apps, even a flight radar app, and I was simply amazed. It went well for a year after which the company stopped producing it and dropped supporting the phone. Slowly it started lagging, battery life became pathetic and was prone to heating issues. While the world was running Android Icecream Sandwich, I was still on Froyo.

Even at that time, apple products were really famous and I used to snigger at apple fans and used to t…
