 You bought a television screen for $50,000?!?!?!? Must be nice to have money to burn... Takes me 3 years to make that kind of money.... ugh... I'm so poor.
 Are you from the old Apple computer days where the modifier key was called "Open Apple"? Is calling it the "Apple" key a personal preference or just a hard habit to break? From way back to the 80's, it's always been the Command key on the Mac, hasn't it? Sorry to sidetrack the thread, but I was just curious. :P
Just use a Private Window. Session data is destroyed when closed. You could even change the keyboard shortcuts so that Cmd-N opens up a Private Window instead of a new window. It would be nice for that to be a permanent setting, which I believe Firefox has?
This is inexcusable. 
I may actually consider a ZenBook to run Linux!
 The whole "can't run OS X" argument is convenient for us, but the only reason that it won't run on non-Apple products (without some hacking) is because Apple wants it that way. It's not a technical fault of the PC hardware, even if much of that hardware is of a lower build quality.
I must say that I've yet to use a PC laptop with a decent trackpad. None of them have ever matched Apple's trackpad in quality and user experience.
To have all stores brought down by a DNS error represents an unacceptable "single point of failure" in their architecture. Let's hope they learn from this and refactor their stores so there's less dependency on a single system. Cloud-based systems are called "cloud" because they are meant to be mini-internets... fairly resilient to technical problems. That wasn't the case here.
If this is a real concern, I expect a third-party solution consisting of a short cable with a USB-C connector on one end and a MagSafe-like connection at the other. Nobody says the MagSafe needs to be right at the laptop itself. But with the laptop being so light, would it have enough weight to withstand a tug on the cable, even if there was a magnetic connection? Maybe that was part of Apple's research.
$80 for a short adapter cable? Prices are getting outrageous.
