Did Apple just ruin an almost perfect new MacBook Pro design?

So there we have it. After roughly 600 years (okay, six), Apple has finally seen fit to redesign the MacBook Pro. The company revealed its brand new pro notebook during tonight's 'Unleashed' event, and the new machine is already eliciting strong reactions online.

Rather than love it or hate it, it seems the 2021 MacBook is already proving to be something of a love it and hate it device. There's plenty to like here, from the return of ports to the super-slick new display. But a couple of points of contention are proving hard for Apple fans to swallow. (Don't fancy waiting?
