Dual ACDs - But where do I put the firewire?

    So I've got my new mac pro and its very very very lovely. But does anyone else feel the firewire port provision is a bit lacking in these machines. I have 2x23" ACDs and obviously there is a firewire hub in each of these, but whilst I can plug both displays into my gfx card, I can't plug both the firewire cables in. And due to the way the ACD cabling is bundled together, I can't plug it in round the front either or even daisy chain them. Although even if I could, that seems like a bit of an ugly solution to me.

    I just think that it would have been a nice additional touch to get more than one FW400 and one FW800 on the back of such an otherwise pleasing (and hugely expensive) piece of machinery. Would it have been so difficult to add a couple more?

    I hear you.

    I just have a simple little firewire hub. Works great.
