For what use is that USB connector inside the case on the upper back wall?

It only has 5v supplied to it. I guess you can hook up a wifi camera to it or some other accessory? I have no idea honestly.

There's a lot of unused connectors on the board, because it looks like it was originally intended for a different machine. If I recall correctly, the connector on the board is wired, via the plug nearby, to go to the back of the printer, and is the printer port.

Well its super convenient if you ever put the aftermarket open source smoothieware CPU into it and run it with octoprint. Octoprint is a open source print server that can provide a live feed of the print via the app or your browser, it can even render timelapses its pretty nifty I've used it for years on my hobby 3D printer.
