    Hello everyone,

    I need to buy a USB Hub for my 15" Powerbook (last revision.) I mainly plug in my iPod and a external USB hard drive (that requires two USB ports, I'm assuming for power.)

    I've been looking for a hub for quite a long time now, just one that is Powered as I've experienced plugging in my iPod into my Hub built-in to my Apple keyboard, to only get a error about power management.

    So the question is what kind of Hub can I get so that I don't get into issues with the Power, since I'll be plugging a USB Hard drive and a iPod at one time.

    Thanks ahead,

    Pretty much any USB 2 hub that comes with an AC adaptor. There is no Mac-vs-PC issue with compatibility.

    This is turning out to be very hard to find. Can anyone help me out?

    I'm in Australia, and a good website that searches multiple websites is www.ausprices.com.au. I'm in Victoria.

    Thanks,
