Minimum acceptable amount of USB ports on a computer?

At least 3. My laptop only has 2 and it annoys the crap outta me since my mouse uses up one of those 24/7.

4 bare minimum, mouse, keyboard, controller and one more open for headset/flash drive/external hard drive etc.

Personally I'd need at least 6 because I have mouse, keyboard, controller, headset, external hard drive and the other for my flash drives.

4 I say. I have one for my mouse, one for keyboard, one for my printer and one open to plug my tablet, phone etc. into when I need it!

I went with 3 but that's because I'm using my laptop for the time being.

I have that USB strip that has 4 slots and I use that as well but it can be cumbersome to use.

With all the devices I have that use USB, it would be foolish for me to have under 6 USB ports.
