All four USB ports (2x USB-A, 2x USB-C) of the Slim 7 operate according to the USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard. The two USB-C ports support Power Delivery and DisplayPort. This gives the laptop a total of two video outputs. If an HDMI and/or VGA output is needed, the included 3-in-1 hub (USB-C to VGA, HDMI, USB-A) will come in handy.
The USB-C ports also allow charging the battery. A 45-watt USB-C power adapter (20 V, 2.25 A) is sufficient to charge the device when it's in standby mode, idle mode, or turned off. At least a 65-watt power adapter (20 V, 3.25 A) is required to charge it when it's turned on. It is not possible to completely power this model off of USB-C since the charge rate will be limited to 100 watts.
The ports are distributed along the three sides of the laptop. The power supply connection and the two USB-A ports are at the back. Consequently, connected cables run towards the back without getting in the way. Positive: The illuminated labels of the ports on the back make it much easier to plug in a connector without looking.
