Why two power ports on a budget laptop??
#9
It is mostly evolution, they are going to change styles every few years no matter what.

Even if your device socket never fails, it will be superseded and you will be forced to ""UPGRADE""

The old barrel connector is/was one of the most durable connectors ever made.
Not only is it impossible to plug in wrong, it can swivel and turn with no damage
I especially like the 90 degree connector as it does not stick out as much.
Not to mention the barrel connector can easily handle much more current !

BUT if you cannot find a replacement charger for your device, you wind-up "Buying" new devices !
