Super lightweight: LG Gram

If lightweight is your thing, the 1.15kg LG Gram is for you. It comes with an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, a 512GB SSD, 14-inch Full HD touch display, and integrated graphics. It has one USB-C 3.1 port, which isn't Thunderbolt 3-enabled so you can't use it for external graphics power, but it's still great for fast file transfers.

Business in the front: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme

If you're looking for something for the workplace, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is your best buy. Featuring two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports and two USB-C 3.1 ports, there's a lot of room for all your USB-C accessories. It can be configured with up to a 15.6-inch 4K OLED display with HDR and touch, which is a common trend in laptops this year. That display also has X-Rite Pantone color calibration making it perfect for graphics professionals.

Unique design: Microsoft Surface Book 2

The Surface Book 2 is Microsoft's flagship laptop, featuring most of the bells and whistles you'd come to expect on a premium laptop. It rocks 8th Generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, up to 32GB RAM, 1TB of storage, and a beautiful 4K display. It has just one USB-C port however, and it's not Thunderbolt 3-enabled. It's still great for file transfers though.

If we're making some suggestions

USB-C is a universal USB port that works with a number of different external peripherals ranging from USB drives, external GPUs, webcams, and much more. There's 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 laptops list.

Whether you're looking for a USB-C 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 USB-C laptops.

I personally love the Dell XPS 15 as it feels like the all-round best laptop you can get for great price. It's powerful and has plenty of ports, especially that crucial USB-C port we're all here for. It also has that beautiful Infinity Edge display with very little bezel, making a 15-inch laptop feel like a 13-inch one.
