CLAIMS

WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1. A display device, comprising:

universal serial bus (USB) hub formed within a housing of the display device;

a plurality of USB ports, each of a plurality of USB ports communicatively coupled to the USB hub via a ribbon;

a guiderail formed on an outer surface of the housing display with each of the plurality of USB ports coupled thereto to allow the movement of the USB ports along the guiderail.

2. The display device of claim 1 , wherein the guiderail is formed on an outer wall of the display device orthogonal to a surface defined by a surface of a screen of the display device.

3. The display device of claim 1 , wherein the guiderail comprises a rubber seal to prevent contaminants from entering the guiderail and USB ports.

4. The display device of claim 1 , wherein each USB port comprises a locking mechanism to secure each USB port along the guiderail.

5. The display device of claim 1 , wherein each of the plurality of USB ports are moveable upon insertion of a peripheral device into the USB port.

6. The display device of claim 1 , wherein the plurality of USB ports each may be one of a type A USB port; type B USB port; mini A USB port; mini B USB port; mini AB USB port; micro A USB port; micro B USB port; micro AB USB port; and type C USB port.

7. The display device of claim 1 , wherein the plurality of USB ports includes a low power switch to detect the presence of a peripheral device prior to initiating communication between the USB hub and the peripheral device.

8. A computing device, comprising:

a processor; and

a display device, the display device comprising:

data and power supply hub formed within a housing of the display device;

a plurality of data and power supply ports, each of a plurality of data and power supply ports communicatively coupled to the data and power supply hub via a ribbon;

a guiderail formed on an outer surface of the housing display with each of the plurality of plurality of data and power supply ports coupled thereto to allow the movement of the plurality of data and power supply ports along the guiderail.

9. The computing device of claim 8, wherein the guiderail is formed on an outer wall of the display device orthogonal to a surface defined by a surface of a screen of the display device.

10. The computing device of claim 8, wherein the guiderail comprises a rubber seal to prevent contaminants from entering the guiderail and plurality of data and power supply ports.

1 1. The computing device of claim 8, wherein each plurality of data and power supply port comprises a locking mechanism to secure each plurality of data and power supply ports along the guiderail.

12. The computing device of claim 8, wherein each of the plurality of data and power supply ports are moveable upon insertion of a peripheral device into the data and power supply port and wherein the processor initiates

communication with the peripheral device via the data and power supply hub upon insertion of the peripheral device into the data and power supply port.

13. The computing device of claim 8, wherein the plurality of data and power supply ports includes a low power switch to detect the presence of a peripheral device prior to initiating communication between the data and power supply hub and the peripheral device.

14. A universal serial bus (USB) system, comprising:

a USB port communicatively coupled to a USB hub via a ribbon; and a guiderail formed on an outer surface of a housing of a display device wherein the USB port is coupled to the guiderail to allow the movement of the USB port along the guiderail.

15. The USB system of claim 14, comprising a rubber seal to prevent contaminants from entering the guiderail and USB port.
