Why NEW Macbook Pro doesn’t have a SD Card Slot? To No Avail!

NEW Macbook Pro has been very controversial with enthusiasts and abhorrers, and the comments polarize a lot. This is because Macbook Pro has a number of modifications, for instance, all adopt USB Type-C interface, and cancel SD card lot, while it keeps 3.5mm headphone jack which iPhone 7 gives up.
In a recent interview, Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple Inc. gives positive reaction to many questions, covering the SD card lot and 3.5mm headphone jack. What are his answers then?

Why NEW Macbook Pro gives up SD card lot for camera memory card?

Phil Schiller: We get multiple justifications. Firstly, SD card lot looks redundant, and it leaves a tail outside when you plug it in. What's more, there are many quick USD Readers, so SD card lot is not a must. And one card lot only reads one card; you still need a card reader if you get many memory cards. So we determine the cancel of SD card lot as a tradeoff. Besides, more and more cameras are equipped with wireless transmission feature, it's very functional. Such being the case, why a SD card lot? We should say it as a progress.

Why keep 3.5mm headphone jack on New MacBook Pro? Doesn't it discord with NEW iPhone?

Phil Schiller: It doesn't. This is MacBook Pro, remember? If the 3.5mm jack is just for headphone, then it's unnecessary, while wireless is a better solution. But there are still many people use 3.5mm jack to do audio work, so it's better to keep it.
Actually, the second answer makes a lot of sense, whilst the first one might be farfetched. To have a SD card lot seems not indeed the most portable way. There are memory cards like CF for people to use after all. It is a truth that card reader is a basic device for photographers, but it cannot be used as an excuse to cancel SD card lot. Anyway, Apple has always engaged in "forcing users to accept new habit", and along the way users think it no big deal over time.

which is the best laptop?

This is very subjective, but either the MacBook or MacBook Pro because the MacBook Air is more expensive than the Macbook because it is thinner, but does not outperform it.
Now between the MacBook and MacBook Pro there are so general guidelines: -If price doesn't matter, the MacBook pro is the best Apple laptop because of its RAM and Aluminum body finish, also its Sandy Bridge processors and its new Thunderbult Port.
If price does matter, than there are some general deciding factors:
  • What do you do? If you work on your MacBook pro using PhotoShop and Movie Editors and a lot of software- the MacBook Pro is what you want. Also if you game, the MacBook pro is awesome.
  • Is it just for fun? If you want this laptop just for recreational use and not for games requiring heavy processing power for graphics, just get the MacBook.
Bottom Line: MacBook Pro is the best Mac laptop

Do the patterns of distortion change as you are twisting and bending the laptop body? If so, you're dealing with a logic board issue. Probably your GPU is not soldered properly anymore. Go to the Genius bar first, if they can't help you can try a self repair or send it to a third party place. There is a free Macbook Air Repair guide that will show you how to do it. iPad Repair
