Does this only come with USB 2.0 ports? I didn't see any details on the USB ports on the "print summary" section.

TIA.

Ubuntu is Linux variant OS. If you want Windows you will have to buy a copy, that is the only downfall with this laptop still a good price.

Ah, no hdmi kinda sucks. How is the audio? Hopefully the speakers are loud enough, not like the last Dell I had.

stop *attempting to state facts if you don't know what you're talking about..

it does come with a hdmi port.

Speakers are loud as hell

Only con with this laptop is that it uses an alps trackpad.
