The world of computers has a staggering array of cables, adapters, and ports in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Most people don’t have to deal with these things on a daily basis, and one look at the back of your PC or the side of your laptop can sometimes be a bit confusing.
This handy chart is intended to help with that.
Not everything in the world is depicted here, but we’ve compiled a collection of all the common and/or major types. See anything that is incorrect, or think we should have included one you don’t see here? Drop us a comment below and we’ll make sure the next revision takes those into account. Thanks!
