There's an option of using the Type-C USB ports, with 1 x USB 3.1 / USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports being offered too, allowing both the use of almost any current peripheral, but also adaptors & dongles allowing use of additional ports for the laptop.

With a backlit keyboard, you'll clearly see your keys and ensure minimal mistakes when you're typing what you need to type.

The numpad inclusion on the laptop ensures optimal access to number keys, so if that's what you're after then this laptop has it for you.

If you're like us at LaptopAXS and enjoy remote work, you'll love the Kensington Lock Slot that's offered. Lock your laptop up on the go, and ensure it doesn't walk off with a Kensington lock slot appropriate lock.

The option of the fingerprint reader gives you login & security flexibility, by allowing you to sign in to your laptop with just the tip of your finger.

Don't fret about your wired headphones though, the 3.5mm headphone jack will let you plug right in.
