Why is USB-C important?

USB-C is an important USB connection type for laptops to have for a variety of reasons. The biggest one is that they allow for faster charging and data transfer because they can carry more data and power per second than other USB connection types can. Another big advantage of USB-C is that the plug and port are both smaller, which helps to ensure that no space is wasted both on your desk and on the chassis of your laptop. Finally, the smaller size of USB-C also makes it easier to connect and disconnect, which is great for quality of life.

Generally speaking, USB-C is the way of the future so most newer devices will have them. However, the Surface Pro 6 didn't come with one, which was one of the biggest disappointments regarding the device. It might not seem like a big deal, but the Surface Pro 7 adding one is a huge step up from the previous iteration.

The Surface Pro 7 brings a lot more to the table than just a USB-C port. Its 12.3-inch 2736x1824 display will no doubt look awesome, and the fact it has Intel's newest 10th Gen CPUs means that it will have more computing power than previous Surface Pro generations. On top of that, it can also be configured with up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage space, which should be more than enough for everyone. It has a Windows Hello-compatible camera as well, and it will be compatible with Wi-Fi 6, the newest Wi-Fi standard that offers increased connection speeds and better bandwidth stability.
