Apple has an ideology of minimalism going back to Steve jobs. It's why they didn't make 2 button mice and they took away floppy drives etc.It has always been born of a certain arrogance, that they knew better than their users what the user should want regardless of how accurately this matched reality.In many cases they have just been wrong and their designs have been counter productive to their aesthetics. The lack of ports simply makes Pro users who need these things buy hubs which create a rats nest of cables, very much contrary to their espoused design minimalism. It just pushes the ugliness off the main computer to somewhere else. It's a NIMBY attitude toward design. Dongles to me are a design fail.
