    They mean the same thing. I would use "connects with" since "connects to" implies a more literal connection, but the difference is very slight. Either one would be accepted without a problem.

    I agree. It is a matter of preference. We tend to use connect with, when using names (of persons/places)and connect to for things other than names: as:
    John and Mary were connected with each other during the meeting.
    This tunnel connects England with France.
    Please connect this end of the pipe to the input point of tap.
