An XIM is a small device that plugs into a computer’s USB port and allows a mouse and keyboard to be used with the computer. There are two types of XIMs – an External XIM and an Internal XIM.
An External XIM is connected to the computer via a USB cable, while an Internal XIM is directly connected to the computer’s USB port.
The advantages of using an External XIM over an Internal XIM are that an External XIM can be used with multiple computers, whereas an Internal XIM can only be used with one computer at a time. Additionally, an External XIM is less likely to malfunction than an Internal XIM.
The disadvantage of using an External XIM over an InternalXIM is that an External XIM is more expensive than an InternalXIM.
