If we're making some suggestions

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware capability upgrade for USB-C ports that deliver more power thanks to an increased amount og PCIe lanes. Thunderbolt 3 ports come with 4 PCIe lanes, allowing for more data to be parsed at any given time. This enables unique use cases like faster file transfers, power delivery, and even the use of external GPUs.

Whether you're looking for a Thunderbolt 3-enabled laptop that puts emphasis on design like the Huawei Matebook X Pro, 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 Thunderbolt 3 laptops.

I personally love the Huawei Matebook X as it's so beautifully designed yet doesn't skimp out on power. It's powerful, slim, and has that important Thunderbolt 3 port we're all here for. It also has that beautiful Infninity Edge display with very little bezel, making a 15-inch laptop feel like a 13-inch one.
