The custom Raspberry Pi 4 4 GB has the ports normally found on the Raspberry Pi 4, but thanks to the longer orientation, it can have all the ports on a single side, creating an overall smaller footprint for the device. These various ports include an RJ45 ethernet port, three total USB ports with two being USB 3.0, and two Micro-HDMI ports, and the large GPIO pins are completely accessible.

These ports allow two displays to be easily connected while still featuring support for a USB mouse and having two more USB ports.
