Surface Laptop prototype shows Microsoft could have fixed its biggest problem



In a video showing the development of the Surface Laptop Microsoft inadvertently revealed that one of the prototypes for the device included a model with 2 USB-C ports.

When asked why the final device includes only one regular USB 3 port Microsoft reportedly said that the new standard was too immature and at present lacked “broad market adoption”.

Apparently Microsoft felt Surface Laptop users would be more likely to make use of a mini DisplayPort and traditional USB port than the new USB-C connections, which would be sensible if students and children were targetted by the device, rather than professional users.

Microsoft has also previously said that they were committed the providing the same Surface Connector over their full range of products, something a collection of USB-C ports would presumable negate.
