I would like to order a DIY Edition laptop. However, I could not find any information about the type of port that would come standard with this machine. I understand that one can purchase expansion cards that provides a variety of ports, but I just don’t know if I need to buy some in addition of the machine.
Any advises would be welcome.
The DIY edition comes with 0 ports, you will have to select your own on your needs. 1 USB-C will be needed to charge the laptop. I went with 2 x USB-C so I can charge on either side, 1 x HDMI, 1 x DP, 1 USB-A. I’m going to pick up another USB-C and USB-A for added flexibility in the future.
If you purchase the non-DIY version they include 4 expansion cards in the price and you can add additional expansion cards if needed.
Thanks Rupert for your quick response. I now know what to do
To be precise, the DIY edition has ports as well, it’s just that they are recessed and all USB-C, so they’re much more useful when expansion cards are plugged into them.
There is also a 3.5mm headphone jack on the left side of the laptop, independent of the four USB-C expansion slots.
