This pisses me off, a $1500 laptop (that's 17.3 inches) and only having 3 USB ports on it. That's only enough for my keyboard, mouse, and external hard drive, when I've got several more devices.

I feel kinda like laptops already have a keyboard installed. But since you're using a separate keyboard and mouse, I feel like portability isn't what you're looking for, so one of these should more than do the trick: http://smile.amazon.com/Sabrent-4-Port-Individual-Switches-HB-UMLS/dp/B00BWF5U0M/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1406522034&sr=8-4&keywords=usb+extender --- "Are you going to buy this time?

If you need anything more than a mouse and the occasional peripheral plugged into your laptop, you should have gotten a desktop instead. Laptops are meant to be portable, not tied down to a desk. --- 4670K OC | 2GB PNY GTX 770 OC | 8GB 1600 | 120GB SSD | 1TB WD Blue | Gigabyte Z87MX | EVGA 600w | BitFenix Phenom M | Win8.1 Pro http://imgur.com/KaTyP5o.jpg

If you've got room for a keyboard you have room for a hub --- Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

Mine has 5, and the most I've ever used at once was three. Usually I just have the mouse hooked up, but one of the clients I worked at had an extra monitor I could hook it up to, so I had a keyboard as well, and happened to plug in a thumb drive for three devices. --- Console war in a nutshell: http://imgur.com/xA6GJZ9.png

Should have gone with a desktop if you were going to teather it down. --- Dood... http://wp.me/1EBnQ "The best thing to happen to Linux is the release of Vista." Jack
