Plugging two external hard drives into the USB ports at the same time will not be too much for the Mac, will it? Is there a limit to how many things can be plugged into a Mac without it crashing?
Should be OK. If too much power is being drawn from any USB port, your Mac will let you know and will disable that port until the device is removed.
