The loss of MagSafe
From David Sparks’ review of the new MacBook:
One final comment on the single port is that it takes a significant amount of force to remove the cable from the port. We’ve all lamented the end of MagSafe. I can confirm it truly is dead with the new MacBook because if someone trips over your charging cable while plugged into this new computer, your MacBook will magically and literally be transformed into a MacBook Air.
In a house with 2 dogs and a number of family members always around, the MagSafe port has unquestionably saved me thousands of pounds in repairs and replacements over the years. It’s loss alone is enough to put me off the new MacBooks.
