Using the Gateway PRMPH Port

Replicator

The optional port replicator gives you a convenient way to attach external devices such as a monitor, a full-size keyboard, or an AC adapter.

Although devices can be attached directly to the ports on your notebook, the port replicator lets you make all of those connections in one step. The port replicator also gives you access to additional ports not found on your notebook.
