Give our regards to anyone still clutching a four-pin USB cable out there: Apple is slowly winnowing down its MacBook Pro line and eliminating the remaining machines built with anything other than USB-C Thunderbolt ports. After Monday's WWDC 2017 keynote, the low-end 13-inch, non-TouchBar MacBook disappeared from the Apple Store. That leaves the aging MacBook Air and the $1,999 previous-generation 15-inch MacBook Pro as the only Apple notebooks that won't need a dongle to charge your iPhone.

If you're willing to keep your machine plugged in, on the other hand, Apple's most powerful computer yet actually comes with four USB 3 ports, four USB-C/Thunderbolt ports and a 10-gigabit hardline ethernet jack for all of your various peripheral and backward-compatible gear needs. It will not, however, fit in your laptop bag.
