So my sister has a fully operational graphite iMac sitting in a box because her children ruined both usb ports by yanking the connecting cords out of the ports over and over. (they can't connect the keyboard and mouse anymore.) I've been told that it might be more expensive to have the ports repaired than the computer is actually worth. It's still a great little computer so I was wondering since both firewire ports are fine, could an firewire/usb combo be used to bring the machine back to life. Could she connect a firewire cable to the computer and then to the hub, then plug the keyboard into the usb input on the hub? Would that work. I would appreciate any helpful suggestions.
