The front panel has two 5.25-inch bays, and one 3.5-inch bay. Our review unit came with a single DVD burner.

The Open Computer has two audio ports and a pair of USB 2.0 ports on the lower half of front panel. It doesn't have a media card reader.

The decidedly PC-looking back panel has a typical array of ports. It doesn't have eSATA or FireWire.
