combined "audio line out/headphone (digital/analog)" minijacks,
a 10/100/1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet port,
an SDXC card slot and
an HDMI port as well as
a new "Thunderbolt" port that is backwards compatible with Mini DisplayPort and likewise supports an external display at 2560x1600 and passes an audio signal as well.
