    Does anyone know of a hard drive that has a built in USB hub? Might sound strange but I could do with one as my MacBook only has 2 USBs

    Cheers

    Several years ago, LaCie, WD, and Newer Tech offered them, but only USB 2.0. Haven't seen anything delivered with USB 3.0.

    The hard drive connected via the single USB 2.0 cable, and also had several additional USB 2.0 ports on the drive.

    Unfortunately with USB3.0 it can be expensive. There's MacSales Ministack - e.g. http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/ministack_max with built in DVD or BD drive, but that's $159 if you go for the enclosure only. The classic with USB 2 is $40.

    I meant "exactly what I want" to the first poster but that does look cool
