Chapter 37. Ports & Peripherals

This chapter describes those places on the back or side of your computer where you plug things in (ports) and the things you plug into them (peripherals). You can spend years on your Mac without knowing the information in this chapter because one of the greatest things about the Mac is that if a cable fits into a port, it’s the right match. It’s not possible to plug something into the wrong place. So you don’t really have to know anything about the back of your computer—it it fits, plug it in and move on. But when you get to the point where you want to know the difference between a FireWire port and a USB port and a serial port, then dive into this short chapter.
