The life is changing and Apple is diching type A USB port entirely. However, if you do design a laptop with ports, try harder to place them so users can actually use them. I had a pleasure to use the laptop on the photo below of a student of mine. The laptop is not branded for left-handed people, the students was sold a wired mouse with a "short" wire and the only USB port is on the left side. How the seller was expecting her to be a happy user and returning costumer is beyond my imagination.
