However, If you had actually done any research, you would know that USB-C is 100% compatible with USB 1.0 to 3.0,
And if you weren't a pompous gaslighting windbag, you would know that I DID do my research. I know *exactly* how many ports the macbooks come with. I know the available combinations of storage and ram available across the different models. I know exactly how Apple is artificially restricting options on the lower tier devices to force you to buy the higher ones because I spec'ed it all out. And I know perfectly well what is available as far as dongles go. And I am ESPECIALLY aware of just how breathtakingly complex and all emcompassing the USB-C standard is, thank you very much.
My point is simple: IT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH, and I expect a HELL of a lot better out of Apple.
Today, right now, there are ZERO TB3 docking stations or port replicators available. From ANYONE. Apple themselves sells exactly ONE TB3 HDMI converter, and it doesn't even fucking work! And you consider this a reasonable situation? And your solution is to buy dongles and dongles and more dongles, and daisy chain them into some tentacled monstrosity? Great! So now we're adding even more parts to the system, and more points of failure. Do you even USE computers or do you just masterbate to their spec sheets?
Furthermore, I thought you cared about how AMAZING Thunderbolt 3 performance is? Well guess what einstein, if you use one of those USB-C port replicators you linked, you LOSE that. You drop from 40Gbps down to 10. But that's ok as long as you win the argument, right?
And BTW, Apple has artificially restricted the number of displays you can drive per port, to one. So even if you have an appropriate port replicator with multiple video outputs, they all will display only one video stream. What's your excuse for THAT little gem?
It boggles my mind that you are utterly unable to accept ANY criticism of Apple, like they are some kind of God and you are their koolaid drinking raving prophet.
News flash: You're not an evangelist. You're not smart. You're just annoying tool who can't deal with reality.
