It’s surprising to see an ultrabook house an assortment of ports and connectors. In the Portege's case, we're talking about two USB 2.0 ports, an USB 3.0 port, VGA, HDMI, gigabit Ethernet, and a Kensington lock slot. The 1.4GHz Core i3-2367M CPU might seem obsolete in comparison to today’s Core i7 chips, but performance is still adequate for non-intensive tasks. The super-slim form factor and light G-factor of 2.4 pounds also make it comfortable carry.
