External HD + USB hub

- 15.4" MBP - 2.2GHz C2D, 2GB RAM, 120GB HD, GeForce 8600M GT w/ 128MB DDR3
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?

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.
