W10 Laptop wish list

You need to clarify your USB ports, USB 3.1 has to do with signalling protocol.
USB 3.1 Gen 1 is the same as the old 3.0 (5Gbps).
USB 3.1 Gen 2 doubles it to 10Gbps.
Ports can look like the usual Type A except for the colour of plastic, (but only if the manufacturer follows the standard).

Then you have Type C which is a physical port type, the new reversible connector, (it's possible to  have USB 2.0 Type C ports).

So I think you might mean:
USB 3.1 Gen 1 (or 2) Type A (same as the USB 3.0)
USB 3.1 Gen 1 (or 2) Type C

The Type C will most likely have the Power Delivery standard and be used for charging it.

Thanks for the clarification.  What I am hoping to do is continue using my USB 3.0 and 2.0 sticks while buying one of the faster 3.1 to try it out  I was looking at an Asus that had a 3.1 C connector with the higher speed.  The main downer was the 8GB was only DDR 3.

Your "don'ts" notwithstanding, these might be worth a look. Discounted right now on the U.S. site:
