USB-C is the latest USB technology standard for connectivity and power, letting users connect a series of devices to their laptops without using ten specific cables for every operation.
This revolutionary technology is set to replace the USB interface created more than 20 years ago.
And judging by the number of companies that support this technology, companies that include Microsoft, Google, Samsung, Apple, Dell, HP, and Intel, it is just a matter of time until USB-C ports will completely replace classic USB ports.
The USB-C technology was developed by the USB Implementers Forum and has a 24-pin configuration, bringing a series of advances that will allow manufacturers to develop better devices.
For example, USB-C ports are much thinner than standard USB ports, allowing manufacturers to design thinner devices. They are also twice as fast as USB 3.0 ports and support DisplayPort, HDMI, power, USB and VGA.
Considering all these advantages, the general trend among laptop manufacturers is to focus on USB-C compatible devices. Let us see what are the best USB-C laptops available on the market at this moment.
