— but then again for a 1TB external drive – that's a tempting price.. more expensive yes, but no moving parts and way faster.. Use it to connect my external drives, and my i Phone / i Pad.presumably these will be coming out sometime in the future from G-tech What is everyone's must have buy list whilst Apple are "Special pricing on this item for a limited time. Mine are: USB-C to USB Adapter A.00 USB-C to Lightning Cable (1m)A.00 Belkin USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter A.95 USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter A.00 Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter A.00 Apple Thunderbolt to Fire Wire Adapter A.00 *** NOT discounted *** Quite frankly, the first two should be included free with every new MBP PS I have a 30" Cinema display – what combination of adapters do I need to be able to connect to one of these new USB-C machines? And possibly a gigabit ethernet adapter although my wi fi is good enough.Also, SD card slot is so thin, unlike that bulky USB-A port : P I would like to be able to find a short USB C 3.1 To USB B cable for connecting my external USB HDD 's. often the cheaper stuff has chipset limitations, which limits bandwidth below what is theoretically possible.
Specifically, Apple reportedly requires TI's second-generation TPS65983 chipset for full compatibility.".
Early adopters are learning the meaning of being on the bleeding edge of technology. Apple annouced even orders in process will get the lower cost.
"Update: According to Mac Rumors reader Philip, Apple will refund the price difference for customers who have already purchased adapters for their Mac Book Pros.
Customers who still have orders pending will also automatically see a price drop.
IIRC, one of my older G-Drives (with Fire Wire) doesn't have an external power option, and even if it does, I'm not sure I'll be able to find its power adapter.
I also ordered one of these today for pick-up at the Perth Apple Store tomorrow.Ended up grabbing a new Macbook Pro this morning; not sure if I'm going to under fire for this based on how you guys are reacting in the 'Macbook Pro 2016' thread.But yeah, anyone out there got any good suggestions for USB C to USB A dongles and HDMI? Best dongle I've found so far is one from Kogan, 'https:// Aliexpress and other China based sites have so many of these adaptors and dongles. Just bought two of these and two short cabled version units yesterday. I will be eager to find out what you choose and how it performs.as i said in the other thread, all the people brushing off the concerns about the brave new world of dongles clearly haven't had to rely on them much in the past.at least with the older Thunderbolt 2 dongles it was easy to use a bit of electrician's tape to keep the dongle in place...The remaining essentials would be at least 1 USB type A port and an SD Card reader.
