HI, all

I currently own a late 2008 15" unibody macbook pro. I would like to find and purchase a good Expresscard expansion card for the laptop as I keep running out of USB ports whenever I want to attach a mouse, my iphone and my portable Time Machine Backup.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to a model of card that would work in both Windows and the Mac OS environments? I'm currently running Snow Leopard and Windows 7 (boot camp).

My preference is a card that has USB and possibly a firewire 400 or ESATA ports so I can hook up an external E-SATA drive (USB being quite slow for data transfers compared to E-SATA and Firewire).

QUOTE Thanks
