Can anyone explain to me why manufacturers still install USB 2.0 ports in laptops? USB 3.0 is backwards compatible, so there’s no need, and the tiny bit of savings (if there is any) doesn’t seem worth it.
USB 3.0 is still relatively new. These are factory reconditioned so they’re not yesterday’s model in some cases.
I do get that these aren’t bleeding edge, but it still makes no sense to me to include a USB 2.0 if they’re bothering to include USB 3.0 at all. It’s like building a 6 disc Blu-Ray changer, but one of the slots will only play content at 480p max, regardless of whether you’ve filled it with a blu-ray or a DVD. Pointless.
I totally agree.
