Over the past decade or so, Apple seems to have been gradually reducing the number and variety of ports offered on its laptops. However, it seems that users frustrated with expensive dongles that still don't provide enough ports could see a light at the end of the tunnel. Apparently, the upcoming MacBook Pro is set to come with a number of different ports, including USB Type A and an SD card slot. 

Interestingly, these new MacBook Pro laptops are also set to have the latest processing chips from Apple. The M1 chip in the MacBook Air has shown incredible performance and could perform even better in a Pro model with better cooling and heat dissipation.
