TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
No one is using that. It's a kickstarter campaign. With that design,
I'd be worried about the plug snapping off.
I bought a top-of-the-line 17-inch MacBook Pro because the later
models were missing so many useful things such as a CD / DVD writer,
USB ports, FireWire port, and upgradeable RAM and hard drive. It still
has plenty of power for the resource-intensive music software I run on
it. Feels just as fast as the fairly new 15-inch I have from work.
That said, you can get a 3-pack of USB-C to standard USB 3 adapters for $7.
Personally I prefer adapters with a cable. There are various USB-C
port expanders with various combinations such as 3 USB and Ethernet.

I buy machines so seldom that I like to get the biggest/baddest ones I can, but as I understand it, I wouldnât be able to use my USB keyboard without an adapter. So this one looked particularly good with so many options, including an SD Card reader and HDMI output.
