Using a video cable is the easiest way to accessorize your Chromebook. Using an HDMI® cable to connect from the video output of the Chromebook to the input of an HDTV allows you to share audio/video content — such as a streaming video, picture, or presentation.
Using a video adapter allows you to connect the HDMI® video output of your Chromebook to the VGA or DVI input of a computer monitor or TV. Making this connection allows you to share audio/video content — such as a streaming video, picture, or presentation.
Using a video extension solution allows you to connect your Chromebook to a projector or other display at a distance. Making this connection allows you to share audio/video content — such as a streaming video, picture, or presentation.
Some Chromebooks do not offer a port for a wired network connection. Using a USB to Ethernet adapter allows you to add wired network connectivity to your Chromebook. Making this connection provides a level of reliability and network speed that is not offered by a wireless network connection.
Using a data adapter, such as a USB to serial adapter or USB to hard drive adapter, allows your Chromebook to interact with external devices for control or storage. Making this connection allows you to program or control a device through serial commands, or to access or store information on a drive separate from the internal storage of the Chromebook.
With the multitude of USB devices in our lives, such as a keyboard, mouse, flash drive, etc., it is easy for you to use up all of the USB ports offered on your Chromebook. Using a USB hub allows you to expand the number of available USB ports. Making this connection allows you to connect and use all of your USB devices when you want.
