There is an HP Pavilion 15" laptop on Amazon with a I7-8550U chipset. Its pretty fast chipset.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077HQZLH3/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza

No model listed.

Go to HP website and they do not sell a 15" Pavilion laptop with a I7-8550U. Chat with HP and they said they do not sell it yet.

So is the reseller on Amazon changing chipsets? Changing something internal so it appears to have a I7-8550U when you display it. Not having the chipset and hope no one will notice or care.

The laptop is a decent price. My initial question was trying to find out the speed of the USB ports. That lead me to the HP website where I could not find a Pavilion laptop with the I7-8550U chipset.

It's in the amazon listing you linked to:

BTW, Sam's Club seems to be selling that chipset, too:

USB type-C is a connector type not an port type. You could have a USB type-C on a USB 3.1 or a USB 3.1 Gen 2.

The specifications for this laptop at the Sam's Club website says it has one USB Type-C 3.1 Gen 1 (Data up to 5Gb/s) and two 2 USB 3.1 Gen 1 (Data Transfer Only).

With the two flaws discovered in all Intel chip sets from today going all the way back to the Windows 95 era, I'd wait on buying a new computer until the revised CPU's are available in them. Meltdown and Spectre. Here's a nice quote on the debacle:

"The average user shouldn't see significant performance changes from applying Meltdown and Spectre patches, except perhaps with processor-intensive tasks like video editing".

Re-engineering a chip is a time consuming process. The first chips will go to Intel based servers which is where the problem really is.

They say the trade was in the works before the defect was discovered.

Of course they'd say that, otherwise it's go to jail. Martha Stewart style.

I now think the person at HP I did a chat with was mis-informed. They do make laptops with the I7-8550U chip. May not sell them on how.com.

However seller on Amazon seems ?? as they will not respond with model number.
