The Great Dongle Sale of 2016

Yesterday Apple cut the prices on most of its USB-C dongles. I suspect this is partly a result of the complaints that the new MacBook Pros are USB-C only and that most buyers are required to buy a pile of new dongles to go along with their new Macs. I think it’s a good idea. My only gripe is that the reduced pricing ends on December 31. This transition to USB-C will take a lot more than a few months. Apple hasn’t even released iMacs and Mac Pros with the new ports. These dongles are a necessary cost of moving into the future and Apple should keep these prices low to make it easier on buyers of their multi-thousand dollar computers.
