Apple no longer sells new laptops that come with regular USB ports.
Apple is still selling the old MacBook Air with regular USB ports for $1,000, but the new models are only $200 more expensive and a much better deal.
USB-C and the connectivity standard it supports, Thunderbolt 3, is better than regular USB-A standards, but some people are having a harder time making the switch, which requires buying adapters.
Much to the joy of Apple fans, Apple announced a new MacBook Air, which was long overdue for many, many updates.
As Apple has done with its more recently updated MacBook Pro laptops, Apple added USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports to its new MacBook Air lineup.
It allows users to plug in a USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 adapter to connect a wide variety of devices — including monitors, external hard drives, and even power for charging — into a single port on the new MacBook Air.
