Microsoft might have removed the USB Type C ports from the Surface Laptop 2 and the Surface Pro 6

You literally don't know what you're saying. USB C is not just made as an upgrade for speed but also being on all devices and easy compatibility with everything. Also being able to support various other tech than just data over it. 

And it's point is to get rid of dongles as well, transition takes time you know.

But yeah seriously are they insane ignoring to include Type C really!? 

They better reconsider, cause that is such a fail. Everyone should offer 1 or more already. Make the fucking transition already, making it slow is the only actual painful thing.

Keep in mind that these leaks may be false, I hope they are but you never know.

Edit: Like others have said, the Surface Go has a USB-C port, not sure why they would put it on that but leave out the more expensive models.


Who needs fancy graphics and high resolutions when you can get a 60 FPS frame rate on iGPUs?

The craptastic dongle fest going on is enough to call it dumb, plus there is no device that could use the extra speed it has over typa A.... As for the rest its only beneficial on phones.

You would need dongles to use a surface anyway. USB C is superior in literally every single way. Unless you have a thunderbolt monitor from 10 years ago, you'll need a dongle to use that MDP port.

(FIFY) I do not buy netbooks so no issue there ;) .

Netbooks don't really exist anymore. Ultrabooks and netbooks are distinctly different categories. Stop being obstinate.

Then its not faster it just lacks backwards compatibility... :dry:

This is just wrong. The first USB C devices to come out (Nokia N1 in particular) were about 50% USB 2.0.

Or a cable with mDP on one end. Which while not common in local shops, aren't hard to find online.

They are weak, they have almost no ports at all. Pretty much the description of a netbook.... :dry:

Aside from the non-existent device market if we exclude the dongles? 9_9

Maybe i misinterpreted it, but its still true that it isnt better just because it supposed to be only 3.0 or above... (BTW i didnt see that much USB 2.0 in type A form so its pretty moot argument)

Not surprising at all

Even if the type C is standard, the implementations are not standardized at all and it seems that everyone does their own thing, just look at the type C headphones situation on phones

They really aren't that weak. They haven't been for a long time. Just because they're not gaming laptops doesn't mean they're weak. They come with quad core CPUs now. That's nothing to scoff at.

 

Also, the device market is pretty healthy. There are options to get pretty much everything in USB C at this point.

 

And honestly i have no idea what you even mean in your third point.

Even as I was typing the post I was thinking about dongles but I convinced myself that MS couldn't be that stupid. I guess that shows what I get for having confidence in a corporation.

 

What is it Luis Rossman always says? Companies trying to copy Apples success always copy the bad stuff, not the good stuff.

Not surprised - back when I gamed Console, and bought the Xbox, you had to buy every accessory for it separately. Xbox 360 advertised with as DVD player - sure, but only if you buy the Xbox Microsoft remote control for $30 (couldn't use your controllers you bought) etc.  Typical Microsoft

If that was the only issue with the Surface lineup. While they are nice looking and pretty well made, they are ridiculously expensive and the different configurations are idiotic. You want 512GB? Have fun paying a hefty extra since there's no i5 version with more than 256GB. 16GB? have fun going with the i7 again. Seriously, those devices are slim and light with not much room for cooling so you can hardly use the additional performance. And it's not like as if the i5 wasn't up for the task in 9/10 cases. But nope, they want you to max out the models. Even Apple gives you more options.
