As such, Apple has managed to get the computer down to a super svelte maximum thickness of 13.1mm. That is positively tiny, but to do this, you can’t have your standard USB or Thunderbolt ports, and Apple has had to roll with a new standard.
Not helping these cables was the quality, with the same sort of feeling as the Apple white earbuds: stable and durable, but made from white plastic, and hardly matching the metal body the MacBook was crafted from.
Accessory and peripheral maker Moshi has this week chimed in with a variant of its own, however, which takes the same basic $29 formula, adds 99 cents, and makes the product out of aluminium, matching the metal make of a MacBook a little better.
Unfortunately, you’ll only find it in silver, so if you ponied up for either a gold or space grey MacBook, the Moshi USB-C to USB adapter won’t quite look as good, but at least it will match the machine better from a material point of view.
You’ll find this one in stores shortly, specifically JB HiFi as well as online stores, where it will retail for a recommended price of $29.99.
