    USB hubs?
    Are there any usb hubs that are compatible with iBooks and Mac OSX? And where's the best place to shop for one?

    Thanks!

    Some USB devices need a usb hub with an external power source (i.e. some usb harddisk drives etc) , so make sure yours has the option of hooking up an extra power supply.

    Apart from that you'll want a USB 2.0 compatible model to get the full speed your iBook can manage...

    Oh yeah, sorry I didn't check your specs...

    Get a usb 1.1. hub then if they are cheaper and you aren't going to upgrade anytime soon...
