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.
