The two USB ports in the front are located behind the front left panel, which is also where the headphone jack & microphone jack are located. Its easily accessible. the front left panel has a push-button that opens it and then just push the panel door closed and it clicks shut. It enhances the discrete and professional design to have them enclosed behind the panel door.

They are indeed in the front. It actually has a little door on the left side of the front that has your 2 USB ports, an SD card slot, and your headphone and mic jacks. And for further food for thought, the right side has the disc drive.

This product has two USB 2.0 slots in the front hidden behind a 5.25" bay door, kind of like the 5.25" bay door that hides the DVD/CD burner. It also has a card reader, and headphone/microphone jacks located behind the door.

answer 6
Impossible to answer. Depends on how old the printer is you're using. Basically anything will be compatible though. If you bought your printer when you had XP, it's probably a yes.. However if you're buying a new printer, I wouldn't worry about it. Every printer sold in the store would be compatible with any computer.

Regrettably, no -- Best Buy does not offer pre-purchase customization services or alternate operating systems for items on BestBuy.com or in our U.S. retail stores. Operating systems installation services are, however, available for an additional fee.

It can, but you will need to use an HDMI-to-DVI adapter -- this computer features an HDMI output, but no DVI output.

Yes, the dell 3000 has a VGA output and HDMI output. Your monitor accepts both analog and digital inputs. You can use the VGA no problem however if you want to utilize the digital signal you will need to order an HDMI to DVI adapter.
