I’ve never understood why devices only come with one port of a type when the specification is upgraded. When USB 2.0 came out, motherboards, laptops etc all came with plenty of USB 1.1 ports and then one USB 2.0 port. Then all USB ports on devices were USB 2.0.
USB 3.0 comes out and again manufacturers only put one USB 3.0 port on a device and all others are USB 2.0 ports!
USB 3.0 is much faster than USB 2.0 so if you could use it then why wouldn’t you?
Computers and laptops have gotten smaller and smaller and to become this small they must sacrifice something, first the trusted floppy disc drive went and then the CD/DVD drive was removed – I too replaced my PC with something so small that a standard DVD drive was twice the size!
My main PC is an Intel NUC which is a great fully functional PC for my needs but has a slight issue. Its tiny and as such only has 3 usb ports of which 1 is USB 3.0
