Why is USB C better?

USB C on a notebook can support multiple functions over a single USB-C port. One or two USB-C ports can replace the 5 or more ports found on older model laptops.

USB-C technology incorporates alternate modes to carry non-USB signals. DP Alt Mode must be supported on the USB C port of a smartphone, tablet or computer to view video over USB C. Depending on your equipment, a USB C port can support transferring files, charging, connecting to the Internet, and adding external storage or a video display.
