Legacy Ports on an Earlier PC
The ports in "red italic" are no longer used. DVI and DisplayPort have replaced VGA for monitor connections; however, VGA may be used on low-cost desktop PCs or on laptops for compatibility with external data projectors. "S-video Out" and "TV out" are analog video outputs, which have been replaced by HDMI. See PC input/output.

He condensed it even further as, "USB for Servers", providing storage, network, and cluster connectivity (Figs 2a, b, and c).
