    Well I made my choice and ended up ordering a 2019, 16" Macbook pro with the following specs,
    2.4GHz 8‑core 9th‑generation Intel Core i9 processor, Turbo Boost up to 5.0GHz
    32GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory
    AMD Radeon Pro 5500M with 8GB of GDDR6 memory
    1TB SSD storage

    I can not wait to start working with this new unit in a couple of weeks when it gets here.

    For those that have the new MBP's with only USB-C ports, what kind of adapters do you use?
    I see there are several different kinds of adapters but the 3 most common kind I see are individual, wired hubs and direct attach hubs.

    Which do you use most and do you prefer one style over another and why?

    I have the Hyper drice c hub. It has all the connections and fits tight. Comes with a case to keep it clean internally as well. Very fast transfers.

    That is the one I was primarily looking at. Why did you choose this vs one with a wire?

    I travel a lot. Do you frequently plug/unplug yours?

    Because it was solid and firm. Could leave it on but I pull it out and put it in the soft case when session is done. You could leave it on, its that solid or one with the base. Very tight fit, especually the first few installs. Speed is great.
