How are you dealing with the lack of USB-C on your Surface Pro?

Microsoft's refreshed Surface Pro is a formidable 2-in-1 device, but, like the Surface Pro 4, it lacks USB-C connectivity. While this isn't a problem for a lot of users, there are some who are slowly making the change to peripherals that use USB-C, and the lack on the Surface Pro can be a bit of a nuisance.

Forum member lanakaryatna recently started a thread in our forum that asks specifically what Surface Pro users are doing without USB-C.

I have not device with usb-C so I'm no problem


lanakaryatna mentions that they personally have no USB-C peripheral devices, so it isn't so far a problem, but there are a ton of replies to the post with a lot more information about what can be done to make up for the lack of ports.

Are you a bit frustrated with Microsoft's choice to forego USB-C? Do you have a ton of USB-C peripherals? What are you doing to get around the problem? Head over to our forum now and drop a line!
