I have a new MBP, and want to set it up so that i just have to plug in one cable (not including power) when i bring it to my desk. I have a usb hub that works great for everything except for my WD passport drive (that is powered through USB). Does anyone have any suggestions for a USB hub that has 6 or so ports and an external power supply? ALSO... I would like to use the apple ethernet usb adapter so that i can include the internet cable in the hub. Has anyone tried the adapter with the MBP (does it work with computers that are not MacBook Airs), and is there a disadvantage in using it vs. plugging ethernet into the Mac directly (in terms of speed)?
