    Lots of people here have one of these. It's your typical USB hub with a snazzy looking case on it. Nothing special really but it does the job .

    why shouldn't they use the little Apple , its ok , and most Apple users including me want things that match the Mac's in design ,in fact a lot of people even buy the Mac's only because of the designand install Windows , but Apple just doesn't produce everything you might need ;)

    I for example want since years now again a iMac with a white back between 17-20 inch , i want a AIO system ,but with a AMD processor and fanless like the original iMac G3 slotloader was , for work purpose running Windows , for OSX i still have my PPC Mac's
    and LimePC do exactly produce what i want , but it looks like it was designed by Apple , so it doesn't look out of place between all my Mac's

    and best thing it's a FANLESS computer i fit a ssd inside and absolute silence, runs LimeOS a Linux distro and Windows ..and maybe Android too ..as they work on that

    cant wait for Apple any longer

    I sure as hell do - I'll never pay $10 for an iPhone case if I can get one just as good for $5.

    I don't know what kind of Apple users you hang out with, but that's some messed-up thinking, right there.

    Hey, fellow Apple customers - any one of you don't care about money? No?

    I don't think Apple would make something like this! Anyways, I have couple laying around here and 1 has stopped working out of nowhere. That's why I said they are awesome when they work otherwise it just made out of cheap board.

    You can get if from ebay for around 10 bucks shipped.

    And there are others pos that are like it that you can buy straight from the chi coms.

    A prideful mac user would not have any counterfeit Apple stuff anywhere near their legit Apple stuff.

    It looks very 2006.

    Apple's products are made in China too.

    proud Mac user hmm :confused:
    that iHub is produced in the same country as the iMac's
    ok every product is great when it works but ...
    i know quiet a few people who's new iMac's broke down very quickly too, not to mention the rattling harddrive and yellow tint and the other flaws ,that lead to multiple returns ,...btw why do people need to install fan controllers to keep iMac's cool , then flaws with the iPhone ...
    So please would people stop to talk about quality and Apple in the same sentence please , we can talk about that again when Tim solves those little problems and Apple becomes a company again that not only makes good designed products but also products that are technically above industry standard , no need for the fastest CPU's and best GPU's if the rest is flawed

    Yeah it's trademark infringement, so I'm amazed to see this hasn't been pulled from Amazon.

    It's much cheaper on eBay, though you have to order directly from Hong Kong from most sellers. $8-9 for the iHub 2, and $3 for the original iHub. Both have the glowing Apple logo!

    If you are looking for more accessories to go with your Mac, check the iHDD2 out: :) (~$25 on eBay)

    You may be better off buying off ebay.
    These are from the original MIC gadget sale, that was shut down, or out of stock.

    I bought 2 off ebay a couple of months ago from China for 13/ a piece free shipping. They work great, logo lights up :D, and it's so apple looking.

    Even the case looks original.

    And even if it dies, it makes a nice coaster for an Apple-fan's desk. :cool:
