There are a limited number of computers on the market with USB-C, and right now the Mac Book Pro is the main device to support all of the USB-C functionality.
Plug a Thunderbolt 3 hard drive into the new Mac Book Pro and you can enjoy up to 40 Gbit/second throughput.
Plug the same hard drive into the new Microsoft Surface Pro 4—which has USB-C ports that only operate at USB 3.x speeds—and that same drive operates at up to 10 Gbit/second.
