This upgraded laptop includes a USB-C Port as well as optional integrated IR camera for face authentication and Synaptics® SecurePad™ with integrated fingerprint reader to enhance connectivity, productivity and system security. The adoption of USB-C technology on the Tecra A50-F brings the benefit of data, display and power via an increasingly common port. This multi-function port allows the laptop to connect to a growing range of peripherals, including storage, displays, USB-C docks and power adapters. For maximum expandability, the Tecra A50 offers a variety of full-sized HDMI, VGA, Ethernet and three USB 3.0 ports.
