    15.4" MBP - 2.2GHz C2D, 2GB RAM, 120GB HD, GeForce 8600M GT w/ 128MB DDR3
    External HD + USB hub
    Hi everyone,

    in anticipation of making the big switch (to a MBP), I'm looking into external hard drives. We all know the various uses and I'm especially excited about Time Machine. Anyway, I'm looking for as elegant a solution as possible. I found this, and am curious if there are any other options out there that combine the external HD enclosure w/ a USB hub. If there aren't (or if I'm barking up the wrong tree on a bad product), what do you guys do when you run out of usb ports?

    Texas, where else?
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    Looks like a nice case - considered it when I got mine.

    Don't know, and would see if you can find some reviews on the consequences of trying to use multiple ports simultaneously. Like maybe editing a video thru FW and using a USB keyboard & mouse connected to the unit. How much would it affect data transfer to the drive?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
