Laptop power connectors

Some engineering design solutions are so obvious it is hard to see in retrospect why it was not invented earlier. Each time I plug in micro-USB connector to charge one of my non-Apple devices I wonder - why it is not symmetric like Apple lightning adapter?!

That made me think: wouldn't it be nice to be able to connect power adapter to either side of my laptop? It should not cost too much to put additional power connector.

Welcome to λ-Files. This is a blog where I will be sharing some of my thoughts on science (mostly computer science), engineering and technology. This is a reincarnation of my old blog called This Is Not A Brain Surgery which I was maintaining since 2003.  After 11 years of writing it I decided it is the time for a new start with a new name on a new blogging platform.
