Editor Douglas Black argues that designing a non-budget computer with a soldered SSD is a great leap in the wrong direction.

Three ports, and one of them is mini displayport, of all things. USB 3 C could have carried that signal in a smaller package! And the Surface connect charger, could have been an SD card, or another USB C port, had it charged through a USB C on the other side.

I'll go this far: These are even crazier decisions than Apple. Ok, keep one USB A, that's cool. But two of three ports are bad decisions.

I know people who work for both companies. the Apple ones defended the choice to only have 4 USB-C ports; the MS ones defended the choice to have no USB-C. People are funny. :)

This is why I supported Vaio when they were still out in force. You got the same thin and attractive design except they crammed in a full size SD slot, full size LAN, VGA, HDMI, dual USB and yes non-soldered parts.

Unfortunately the public didn't see the merits, and bought competitors that were sowing the seeds of disposable laptops. This is really the same a 'digging ones own grave'.
