Accessory Port Layout and Performance
The left side, from back to front, features the power port, exhaust port, VGA plug, HDMI plug, Ethernet jack and USB 3.0 port.
The right side, from back to front, features the Kensington lock, CD drive, two USB 2.0 ports, and a combo headphone/microphone jack. As you can see, the DVD drive is slightly misaligned and something I would probably send the machine in for service for.

HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:
Benchmark: measures the performance

Error Scan: scans the surface for errors
HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.
The ASUS S56C absolutely smacks the other systems when it comes to USB 2.0 read performance. It performs 7MB/s or more faster than the other systems. 7 MB/s is a big deal when you consider it's over 20 percent higher.
USB 2.0 write performance is also stellar. It's over double that of the HP Folio 13, and 15MB/s faster than the next fastest system.
On USB 3.0 read performance, the ASUS S56C performs within the pack, neither being a standout nor a massive loser. There's definitely nothing to be concerned about here.
USB 3.0 write speed also falls somewhere into the middle of the pack. It beats out the HP Folio 13, it's only real competition in the charts, though not by any crazy amount. The performance across the board is all pretty similar.
