Best USB-C Laptops Windows Central 2020
Looking for a new laptop that has USB-C ports? Perhaps you need Thunderbolt 3. Maybe Thunderbolt 3 isn’t a requirement for you and you just want your laptop to be futureproofed. Either way, we’ve rounded up what we think are the best USB-C laptops available to buy today. We’ve got everything from beautifully designed, to those with all-out power.
Dell’s latest XPS 13 features Intel’s 10th-generation processors, along with two Thunderbolt 3-enabled USB-C ports for super-fast file transfer and power to external USB-C accessories such as eGPUs. This is a great convertible laptop designed for people who work on the go, need a touchscreen, and an excellent typing experience in a thin design.
If we’re making some suggestions
USB-C is a universal USB port that works with many different external peripherals ranging from USB drives, external GPUs, webcams, and much more. There are different kinds of USB-C, but they all use the same connector. Not all USB-C ports support external GPUs, for example, since that requires Thunderbolt 3 powered by four PCIe lanes, so make sure you pick correctly depending on what you need. If you absolutely need Thunderbolt 3 ports, you’ll want to look at a different laptop list. If you want to take a gander at just overall great laptops, we have a list for that too.
Whether you’re looking for a USB-C enabled laptop that puts emphasis on design like the Surface Pro X, or something with all the power and all the ports, like the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, there’s something for everyone in the world of USB-C laptops.
I personally love the Surface Laptop 3 as it feels like the all-round best laptop you can get for great price. It’s super slim, with a USB-A and USB-C port for versatility, and fast charging support so that you can stay topped up in a pinch. It also has a beautiful 13.5-inch or 15-inch display in the 3:2 aspect ratio.
