On the left edge, two ports USB-C . port Which can be used to recharge the battery or connect an accessory, a button from the sound and the reader Memory Card microSD. On the right edge, a magnetic area allows you to hold the pen while it’s being recharged. This whole design is well thought out when using the screen in landscape mode.

The kickstand built into the rear protective cover allows the screen to be orientated at any desired angle, whether in laptop or tablet mode. The stiffness of the hinge is a good point to hold the monitor in position, but the lack of a notch on the edge of the kickstand makes it difficult to maneuver.
