Here is the link to the page of my laptop specification.

HP Spectre x360 Convertible Laptop - 15t-eb100 touch (3R480AV_1)

Is this enough?


Port selections are as mentioned below:

Expansion slots
1 microSD media card reader
External I/O Ports
2 Thunderbolt™ 4 with USB4™ Type-C® 40Gbps signaling rate (USB Power Delivery, DisplayPort™ 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, HP Sleep and Charge); 1 SuperSpeed USB Type-A 10Gbps signaling rate (HP Sleep and Charge) 1 headphone/microphone combo
[19] For best results with HP Sleep and Charge, use a USB charging protocol standard cable or cable adapter with an external device.
[20] SuperSpeed USB 20Gbps is not available.
