[real-eyes] Re: USB ports

Well, you could always get a USB hub if necessary. And your monitor may well
have USB ports on it too. In my experience, if the monitor has them, they
will be on the back panel, or on the edges of the two sides. Dedicated
monitors I have seen with USB ports have had them exposed, but some of the
HD TVs that also double as monitors have had them behind a  little door.
Watch out for HDMI connections as well. They are obviously different in
appearance, but close enough you could mistake them if you aren't paying
attention.

well, they sent me an XP which is a bummer.
Nothing looked out of the ordinary when I looked through USB ports in device
manager. sigh There are 4 on the front that work, I guess I can make due
with that.
Beats dealing with support and a fourth computer to mail back.
