Interestingly, the device is capable of dual-monitor output if you have one monitor that supports HDMI and another monitor that supports USB type C. They don’t say what else that type C port could be used for, however. It also has two USB 2.0 ports, 3 USB 3.0 ports, Wireless AC (2x2), and Bluetooth 4.2 for I/O. The models start at 8GB of RAM and 32GB of SSD, but that can be expanded to 16GB of RAM and 256 GB of SSD.

The device is covered by a one-year warranty, although with two-way shipping covered.
