    I'm disappointed that there is no USB 3.1/type C, because you can get USB 2 devices to work with USB 3 machines, but you can't get USB 3 devices to work with USB 2 machines. Adapters don't bother me.

    However, it isn't a deal breaker, because I almost never use wired peripherals.

    Plus for the Surface Laptop Contest on now, if I win it I'd be upgrading my grandmother so it would actually benefit her not to need an adapter.

    It's a hard choice. USB-C is more flexible but USB-A is much more popular. Of course it is possible to connect USB-A device to USB-C port via adapter but you have to carry an adapter what is Apple like stupid thing. Eh.

    So nice piece of equipment and so hard choice. LOL

    Not that I use a USB C port,but I would like to have the option to have it rather than not. Its not like I'm looking to upgrade my laptop in the next two years and if USB C does go main stream I don't want to be left behind because of the lack of it on my surface device.

    I'm not entirely sure where I stand on the Surface Laptop missing USB type C. On one hand, Type C is the future, so it should have it, right? On the other hand, what do I have that needs type C? I currently have nothing to plug into the laptop that needs type C.... Maybe my 950... but it came with a USB to type /C cable anyway.

    So I'm not sure where all the fuss is coming from???

    Type-C would have been a better option to get involved in. Though I expect it will come in the next version. The design choice is dating itself in that department.

    Honestly this what turned me off to the iPad pro 9.7 only supports USB 2.0 transfer speeds. My S8 has C and the transfers are real quick. Wish more companies would just bite the bullet and make this a reality. It's here, it's the new stanard... let's just do it already. Us video editing guys would sure appreciate it.

    This does not effect me at all. The Surface Laptop still has USB 3.0 just not the newer features of USB-C. At this point I do not care and by the time USB-C becomes commonplace I would probably need an upgrade over the first gen Surface Laptop.

    Doesn't bother me at all. I cant recall if I have seen a USB-C port yet in my country. So nah, am good. Its still a stunning laptop.

    Not for me. Not having a USB-C is a bit of a bummer, but I still have the other types of uSB cables at home, so it isn't a deal breaker. Hopefully the next iteration of the laptop comes with the type-c.

    Not at all. I dont have anything that uses Type C. All my USB drives, external drives, device charging cables, etc are all normal USB.

    At first, I was a bit surprised about the design choice, but then I remembered that on my Lumia 950XL, it's been nothing but an inconvenience so far. I can never borrow other people's chargers because USB-C isn't popular enough yet, and on my Surface Pro 3, I have all cables and adapters I would need to transition to a Surface Laptop if I chose to do that.

    Besides, I still think USB-sticks are the best way to quickly transfer something between computers, and for most of them you still need, you guessed it, USB-A. I'd take USB-A over USB-C for the coming years, still, because USB-C is too immature. I know some people criticise MS for not "pushing the envelope" here when they've done it in other areas, but regarding how they've pushed the design choices for the Surface line is different than pushing an industry standard (USB-C) that's still very far off.
    hey there, i agree with everything you said. i carry my own chargers because i cant borrow other people's chargers, and usb-a is still a strong candidate for accessories. my lumia 950 xl and nintendo switch have usb-c, but thats it. usb-a is fine for me right now, and as time goes on the standards for usb-c will improve like how usb 2.0 and 3.0 came up, so that and a greater amount of usb-c peripherals are when microsoft will introduce usb-c.

    For me personally, right now, no it doesn't. But with them wanting this thing to last four years, it should have at the very least had a second USB port that was Type C.
