      Poor design choices + nickel and diming = unhappy customer

      As a longtime Apple enthusiast, I tend to go easy on Apple when it comes to controversial design decisions. However, this is getting out of hand. 1) Apple dropp As a longtime Apple enthusiast, I tend to go easy on Apple when it comes to controversial design decisions. However, this is getting out of hand. 1) Apple dropped all cable management for this new adapter design. This time around, there are no fold out clips to wrap the cable around the adapter and there is no clip on the cable itself to facilitate wrapping it up. I have to use a black Velcro strap every time I'm done using it and want to securely stow it in my bag, which is exactly the opposite of the simple yet functional design aesthetic I thought Apple strived for. 2) There is no charging indicator / status light on the new AC Adapters. As a result, I have to log in to the laptop and check the battery meter to monitor progress. 3) There is no reasonable justification for charging $79 for an "extra" AC adapter AND forcing me to pay another $19 for the required charging cable that used to be included (and permanently affixed) to previous iterations of Apple AC adapters. That's right folks, for $79 you get only the power brick, the charging cable (seems like an obvious requirement) that runs between the brick and the laptop is NOT included! Once you throw that in, you're looking at almost $100 to keep a backup power cord in your laptop bag. Apple somehow managed to ruin every single aspect of what used to be an elegant design. Best of all, they charge more for the privilege of using it.

      Too bulky and too overpriced

      This thing works but it's really ridiculous that you need to spend 80 dollars on a power adapter that doesn't even include the charging cable. Also, since the L This thing works but it's really ridiculous that you need to spend 80 dollars on a power adapter that doesn't even include the charging cable. Also, since the LED indicator is gone as well there is no way to know if your laptop is charging unless you heard the sound it makes when you plug it in. Overall, its really not the best but its what you need to power your device.

      works but big and bulky

      whats the big point of sacrificing a few essential ports like the regular USB or ethernet or HDMI on the MacBook Pro to make it 100 grams less lighter if this b whats the big point of sacrificing a few essential ports like the regular USB or ethernet or HDMI on the MacBook Pro to make it 100 grams less lighter if this brick is going to weigh as much as a real brick. Really Apple, really!

      A giant leap backwards.

It's not that it's so bad (it works), it's just a big step backwards. I remember when apple used to lead the design world. Everything that was cool about the power cord is gone. Yes, apple once made a boring power cord cool. Now? It's just plain and sad.

      No Cable...Rip Off

      I think it's absolutely ridiculous they don't include the USB-C charging cable with a new Power Adapter. All previous generations of Power Adapters include the I think it's absolutely ridiculous they don't include the USB-C charging cable with a new Power Adapter. All previous generations of Power Adapters include the cable. Now to get a second charging solution you have to spend nearly 100 dollars.

      What a rip-off!

      NO CABLE INCLUDED, NO CABLE MANAGEMENT, NO LED! Overpriced. Time to move away from Apple.
