USB-C for power

USB-C port, which also doubles as the laptop’s power socket.

Why do manufacturers use such a flimsy, fragile connector for the one cable that will be constantly plugged & unplugged, almost every day? What's wrong with using a decent power connector like HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc., does it really save any money or is it just another part of the build-in obsolescence?
