    Why is there only two USB drive on a macbook.
    you've probably seen me griping about this here before.
    but now i needed to plug in two different devices at the same time. and one was too large for the the other one to fit because the two ports are right next to each other.:mad:
    nice going apple.
    now i have to figure out a different way to two usb sticks at the same time.

    Hey Wake Up Stevento. You Can Daisy Chain Up To 128 USB Ports On ONE Port

    Yea Stevento. You only have room for 256 devices on those two ports. You plug a 4 port hub in one USB slot. Then you plug in another 4 port hub into that hub. Then you plug another 4 port hub into that hub. Etc Etc Etc. I hang 6 USB2 drives off my Quad G5 out of ONE of my three USB2 ports.

    If you buy an Apple wired keyboard, they also have 2 USB 1.1 ports on them
