Dear Lifehacker, I just bought a new laptop with USB type C charging. The manufacturer's wall charger is rated 45W, and is not modular - the USB-C cable is all one piece with the power adaptor.

When the Surface Laptop was released a year ago, it immediately struck me as the Microsoft-built computer I'd been waiting for. You see, I've always admired the design of all of Microsoft's Surface products, but at the same time felt that they weren't exactly for me.

Dell's spiffy Developer Edition notebooks are a product of the company's "Project Sputnik", an "open-ended exploratory project to identify what developers wanted in an ideal system". Unfortunately, despite being widely available in the US and Europe, you can't get them in Australia (the exception being the Precision 5520). So, why do we miss out?
