I just went down to bestbuy because I had a giftcard there today, and I picked up a 4 port usb hub for my macbook pro. This one http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....ustomerReviews . After I got home I read the reviews and saw that it isn't the greatest and doesn't last to long. That doesn't worry me to much but one person said something about it blowing your motherboard to smitherines???? Is this possible?
