you guys sound like desktop users who hasn't shopped for a mobile/portable device in 5 years

the $999 Surface clone I got from Dell even back in 2015 (so probably worth $400 now) had two 40Gbps TB3 ports

TB3 is only on expensive laptops that already have good internal gpus so it is a waste of money and time imho

Instead, USB4 will be more popular and so, more choice and cheaper prices......ah and even amd laptops will benefit from it
