USB Port (3.0) (on selected models)
The USB (Universal Serial Bus) port is compatible with USB
3.0, 2.0, or USB 1.1 devices such as keyboards, pointing
devices, cameras, hard disk drives, printers, and scanners
connected in a series up to 4.8Gbits/sec (USB 3.0),
480Mbits/sec (USB 2.0), and 12Mbits/sec (USB 1.1). USB
allows many devices to run simultaneously on a single
computer, with some peripherals acting as additional plug-
in sites or hubs. USB supports hot-swapping of devices so
that most peripherals can be connected or disconnected
without restarting the computer.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is an
uncompressed all-digital audio/video interface between
any audio/video source, such as a set-top box, DVD player,
and A/V receiver and an audio and/or video monitor, such
as a digital television (DTV). Supports standard, enhanced,
or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio
on a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and
supports 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare
to accommodate future enhancements or requirements.
Display (Monitor) Output
The 15-pin D-sub monitor port supports a standard VGA-
compatible device such as a monitor or projector to allow
viewing on a larger external display.
The RJ-45 LAN port with eight pins is larger than the RJ-11
modem port and supports a standard Ethernet cable for
connection to a local network. The built-in connector allows
convenient use without additional adapters.
