Yep, this is one of the sacrifices, with the other being the speakers, which are not too bad, to be honest, but they are nothing spectacular either. And if you care for Thunderbolt connectivity, you’d better go for the Intel models. You also, won’t be getting an SD card reader, but the I/O is wide enough to incorporate a dongle. Also, the USB Type-C 3.2 (Gen. 2) port supports speeds of up to 10Gbps, which is more than enough for data transfers and a DisplayPort output.
