    Now that my 9 yr old home desktop is dying, should I wait for a laptop with usb-c port?
    Since laptops do come with usb 3.1 gen 1/2, only the usb-c functionality will be lost.
    What would be :
    • the changes in current gen usb-a only laptops' pricing
    • sacrifice in functionality in buying now
    • probabilty of next gen mid range laptops incorporating the new ports (since current high end do have them)
    Thanks folks :)

    I just got a rebranded Clevo and they are coming out with USB-C as standard on a lot of them now

    Anything new coming out as Gaming or Workstation should already have USB3.1 Type-C. If your planning to output video from it as well then look for ThunderBolt3...
