On one hand, Magsafe is an awesome power connector.

Dropping USB-A for C only might be a pain, but that actually makes more sense and is more apple-like than the headphone jack thing. If you drop them from the laptop used by all of the pro photographers, DJs, and hordes of programmers...you will start to see USB-C adoption really fast.
Although I still can't wrap my head around why you would normalize all of your computers to USB-C and insist on rolling with lightning on mobile devices.
Also, switching the function keys top an OLED touchbar also seems stupid.
People actually use those things. Not everybody, but this is the fucking "pro" line. Last I heard google phased out windows and their engineers were all using pros (with a few airs) for laptops. I use the function keys all of the time when I am programming, and I would much rather hit an actual key than tap some light-up strip. Lord knows the 15" MBP has room for keys and ports.
