Machine should have


  • (1) USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port (Power delivery, DisplayPort 1.2)
  • (2) USB 3.1 Gen 1 port (1 charging; 1 powered port)
  • (1) HDMI 1.4b (cable sold separately)
  • (1) Headphone/microphone combo jack
  • (1) AC power input port
USB-C to NIC adapters  should work but I have not test them. I know for sure you can use  USB to NIC. I'm using the following adapter
I've got 2 more USB 3.0 ports. You can use 3, 4, 5 or 7 ports if you wish
