One connector supports power, display output, and USB connections. No thunderbolt. Glenn Fleishman has a detailed write up on Macworld:
> In the pursuit of slimness, sleekness, and simplicity—the same goal that brought us Lightning—Apple has seemingly done with Thunderbolt what it once did with FireWire. But is USB-C a worthwhile shift for users? Well, all interfaces are compromises in one way or another, and Apple believes USB-C meets more customers’ needs, even as the new interface throws some people off a cliff.
I agree with Glenn's conclusion that this will not kill Thunderbolt overnight. This new connector still strikes me as a compromise for people looking for a portable computing solution. There is still a need for expandability in larger desktop computers.Facebook Twitter Google+
