I'm heading to college and do not want to take my desktop this year as I just got a new retina macbook pro. The only problem is I just got two new hard drives for my desktop so I want to bring them with me. If I get two enclosures then that will use up both usb and I will not be able to plug in my mouse when I dock. This is where the problem lies. My ideal solution is to be as cost efficient as possible, while providing ports for everything and not bottle-necking performance. I understand that thunderbolt would provide another port but I cannot find a thunderbolt external enclosure as they are extremely expensive. Ideally my set up would be my 256 gb SSD in a thunderbolt enclosure and then the 2 tb hdd in a 3.0 hard drive because to my understanding 7200rpm does not max out 3.0. Thus allowing my mouse and printer to not bring down the speeds on the hdd. Would this be the ideal setup? Or would it be better to get a usb 3.0 Hub. From what I've read it seems that there is only one usb controller anyways. Thanks in advance!=] Luckily it does have a hdmi port so I'll be able to connect without an adapter for that!
