Alternatively referred to as a port replicator, a port bar is a hardware device that is used to connect peripherals to a computer. These devices are commonly used with laptop computers; for example, a user may have a port bar with a network connection, modem connection, standard keyboard and mouse, and a monitor connected to it. This would allow the laptop to be utilized like a regular computer with all the components and easily disconnect for portability.
