The scope of delivery includes the appliance, power cable, and reading materials. We also have a flash drive that houses the operating system recovery if needed.

The back of the 5200 has the built-in PSU to the top while the I/O includes a switch for boot selection along with all four USB ports. Further down, we have both Gigabit LAN ports and the Kensington lock slot.
