    Still, I am mostly concerned about the need to buy dongles for everything (here is a pen drive, plug it in, oh wait... I can't). I need good old VGA and HDMI too, so the difference is more than 200$. 

    Just one USB-A port left, and no removal of Magsafe and I would be complelety sold on the new size, screen, battery, performance and TouchID. Now... undecided.

    VGA? When's the last time that was available on a Mac?

    You can get a USB-C HDMI/VGA adapter for around $14 on Amazon. You can get one with USB-A also for a few bucks more. 

    I bought one of these for the occasional need for USB-A at $5.99 for a pair and haven't looked back:



    Where do you come up with $200?

    I cannot believe you did not mention the cameragate of the new one. There are plenty of images around there showing how dramatically worse the new camera became.

    ^ This is scandal-worthy? Give me a break.
    See my discussion of that issue with above, already explained enough about those photos.
    And see the photos I provided, in less Apple-approved conditions.
    And of course you are also welcome to check https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8624233 (there are some photos too). With more photos. Look at the color noise on 2018 photos, that is where real scandal can be observed...

    There was another support thread ( https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8627217 ), huge, deleted by Apple (now 'access denied')....
