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, as that requires Thunderbolt 3 powered by 4 PCIe lanes. So make sure you pick correctly depending on what you need.

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, has plenty of ports, and that crucial USB-C 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.
