Problem is standards prevent innovation. While it might be nice to not have to buy new charger, or carry two different ones around. I'd rather be temporarily inconvenienced and give the company the ability to try and come up with a better charger/ports.
This should work out. I don't like it when there is a lot of proprietary stuff. I love the fact that I can use my friend's mini USB when they come over and vice-versa.
"Problem is standards prevent innovation."
How do you figure?
I'd say USB 3.0 is faily innovative...
I don't see PCI-Express slowing us down.
DDR memory has been working out pretty good...
The ATX form factor seems to be working as well...
802.11 standards have been doing wonders for wireless. Without these standards you have to buy new adapters for all of your devices every time you changed your wireless router.
Proprietary is overrated 90% of the time.
If no one has come up with some super awesome innovative laptop charger by now... what makes you think someone is going to revolutionize the laptop charge now? Everyone has been using the same technology for years now they just keep putting different tips on the ends and using different voltage and amperage.
A standard AC adapter for laptops means they will be cheaper and easier to get replacements for.

because we all stopped and excepted USB2.0 - wait now have USB3.0.
an unfortunate fallacy you believe in.
Hello, I think if you can manufacture a universal charger would be best, but it requires a notebook manufacturer labeled consistent, otherwise unreasonable voltage, current, etc., will damage the computer.
