Apple so innovative
That... Is really awesome.
@A pet named Steve, it’s bloody brilliant, imagine what other ports could do this
@A pet named Steve, I have an ancient laptop somewhere I got while working as a computer repair tech that has an expansion card that does this. It was from the late 80’s I think since it had no usb.
@A pet named Steve, but Apple have made a plug in home button for the iPhone X
@A pet named Steve, I haven't been touched by a girl in so long, but this has reminded me what pleasure feels like. This community keeps saying 6'3 guys get all the girls, but all I need is this laptop now.
This is ingenious.

Apple.. The EA of the tech world

@Bow To Your Senpai, I think that's the only time I've up voted you.
See that apple?! Now THATS innovation!
Wait, did Apple seriously get rid of the Ethernet port on their laptops? Welp, that WAS the only thing they had I considered to be worth the money.
@Empshok, I attended a college where they gave art students Macs and other students HP laptops. I can confirm this is true, but the newest models also got rid of USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports.
@TheSlowestOfTrains, pretty soon it's just going to be a shiny, sealed box. With no attachments. It'll just wirelessly scan your mind and decide what you want. For your convenience.
@TheSlowestOfTrains, so not only did they get rid of LAN ports. But they got rid of the USB port you could’ve used to connect an LAN adapter?
You know what F)&@ Apple. I may use an iPhone but I’ll never own a Mac. I already bypass their proprietary cables by using a battery case that has a micro USB port. Because I refuse to pay $16+ for a damn 3 foot proprietary cable that does the exact same thing a 9 foot $5 usb cable can do.
@Seohn, one thing is a laptop and the other is the desktop. I suggest looking at the Mac book pros as they are kind of listening to the consumers again on what they want. Just stay away from the MacBook airs
@Seohn, the issue was that they went with a thunderbolt port. Now if you want to use a printer on campus, you have to hope another student hasn't tried to steal the USB to thunderbolt adapter.
@Empshok, Dude usb C is the future
Death before dishonor
As an IT professional who laments the loss of multiple USB slots, Ethernet ports and CD trays, this is....this is beautiful
Some of HP's thinner laptops have one like that as well that folds down to accommodate an Ethernet cable too. The 840 comes to mind. Nice thing to have especially if wifi is bad where you are using it.
When she says it’s her first time but then her hole is bigger than you thought.
Practically speaking though, these break in a matter of weeks or months.
@FP Waiter, hmmmm I haven’t found that to be the case. Which brand broke on you?
@TR8R, Fujitsu, the brand pictured.
@FP Waiter, okay I had one that worked well a couple years back, never broke on me. I wanna say it was an HP
@TR8R, maybe a better tech company could make it work, but the thin and protruding design is just begging to be broken
@FP Waiter, yeah the design is vulnerable, but you just gotta be careful with it!
Thin laptops have been doing this since the modem was the hot thing. 🙄
@ios11, which part? Removing LAN ports because fúck the customer or finding a way to bypass the problem?
@TR8R, having the slim port pop out so you can shove an rj-11 or Rj-45 cable connected to the machine.
@TR8R, and they didn’t just do it arbitrarily. They made a calculated decision that a VAST majority of their customers use the WiFi and could care less about having a network port. And that by not having it, they saved space, processing power and cooling needs.
@ios11, hmmmm id need a source on the VAST majority of Apple customers not caring about network ports. Seems to not be the case
@TR8R, and I’m going to need proof that more people want it. And saying that people on the internet miss it isn’t proof. It just means that the whiners are out of their cages.
@ios11, you made the claim mate, burden of proof is on you. All I can do is speak personally for myself, my family, and around dozen friends and acquaintances who hate the recent “improvements” Apple has done to their devices.
@TR8R, my proof is that they are a company and do what normal companies do which is use stats and information to help guide them in their choices. You have no proof of anything you say other than a hatred for Apple. Good luck with all that pent up anger. Have a nice life.
@ios11, wow I must’ve hit a nerve 😂 I know your name is ios11 but I didn’t think you’d be this big a fanboi. I know reading comprehension is hard mate, but there is no pent up anger. I laid exactly how I feel about greedy business practices on the table for everyone to see. So in the end your proof is you have no proof, so this conversation can be safely discarded.
