Actually, professional photographer's probably use CF cards. The esc key can emulated, and probably added to the touch bar. Ethernet is probably not used as much as you think it would be. Arguing that because someone doesn't use a port makes them not a professional, maybe they're a different kind a professional. Apple can't build a machine to meet every persons needs. If it doesn't work for you; don't buy it.

It's fucking not just usb c. It's thunderbolt 3, and usb c and the charging port. 4 40GBbs ports! That are not polarized! (the connector goes in either way) What's not nice about that!
I agree that there should have been at least one type A port for 'legacy' devices, but I don't see an adapter/dongle as being a deal killer; and there's already plenty of thunderbolt docks out there; albeit most are thunderbolt 2 right now.

Exactly; this isn't an Apple thing, it's becoming an industry thing. My Le Pan tablet - non user replaceable battery, Motorola blue tooth hands-free unit, same, my Vtech cordless phone, user replaceable, but batteries are only available from Vtech. Sooner or later companies will figure out that they can do the same thing with batteries as they did with ink cartridges.
