Already proven wrong.
Apple insistence on returning to the bad old days of proprietary hardware...
What, the SSD stick? What's proprietary about that connector? I'd love to know.
...will severely limit, if not entirely prevent, aftermarket upgrade and replacement options for things like SSDs...
Other than the fact that they've been offered for quite some time now.
If Apple is moving to an entirely non-upgradable RAM system, you can be sure they'll step up their capacity game.
Already been the case for about three years and people are getting along fine.
Yeah, let's ignore the future for a port that doesn't even have HALF the throughput of ports already shipping
on all but one Mac model.
And for 99.999% of anything anyone would use it for, USB 3.0 is more than fast enough.
1. You're not "anyone".
2. You don't do "anything". Which is blindingly apparent since you have no clue what you're talking about here.
I'll make the obligatory reference. I'll do it. Fine, here it is: 640k ought to be enough for anyone.
"OH, THUNDERBOLT. NO ONE NEEDS TO GO THAT FAST."
I would have thought Apple had learned their lesson from the early 90s that turning their back on open standards was a bad thing.
Again, would you elaborate on what is nonstandard about what they're using right now?
