Solved!

number of usb ports?

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP Desktop PC 870-129
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm looking at the number of usb ports on this model & it says 4 usb 3.0 & 6 usb 2.0.

Does that include usb ports on the front of this model?

 

I'm shopping for a new pc & my older envy has more usb ports and I use them all.

Using pc's since 82. First pc bought 1988. Every day I'm still learning new things about computing.

Hi:

 

When I look at the product specs page below and then count all of the listed ports, I come up with a total of 8 'regular' USB ports and 1 USB type C port.  The USB type C port is one of those little guys that we normally plug our cell phones into.

4 USB 2, 4 USB 3, and 1 USB3 type C

Thanks, I looked at your link which differs from the exact same model. Maybe the Canadian model is different?

I should have added there's no mention on the Canadian site of a usb 3.1?

That is interesting...

 

The illustration of the back ports shows a ttl of 6, not 8.  Too bad they don't show an illustration of the top USB ports with the USB C port shown.

  3. USB 2.0: 2

  7. Audio: Line out

Hi Paul, I agree. I've always had good reliablity & longevity from my HP computers. I've looked at stores in my area but only one sells this model & doesn't have any in-stock, so no luck trying to see for myself.
