Six for me. 4 at the back, 2 at the front.

Here's what's currently plugged in to my ports right now:

1. External Hard Drive (Uses two ports.)
2.
3. Bluetooth Adapter
4. Mouse
5. Xbox 360 Controller
6. Speakers power source or sometimes, my USB flash drive that I use for my classes.


For a laptop, three would be enough.

Mine has 12, 8 USB 2.0 and 4 USB 3.0. 4 are currently in use (kb/m, gamepad & cell charge cable) but I have a couple peripherals not plugged in and I also use flash drives from time to time. I put 8 as the minimum.

My current laptop has 5 USB ports...4 3.0 and an ESATA/USB port. So I went with 5.

4/5, to be precise a laptop.

One for mouse, one for external HDD, one for wireless headphone, 1 for cooling fan and one spare.

4. I use a laptop. I don't know why because I only use 2 at most (1 for mouse and 1 for a flash drive) but I always want some extras.

I need an old school serial port for my dex drive it gives me extra memory for my PS1.
I rather buy games for consoles then buy consoles for games.
If a game needs DLC to be worth playing it is not worth playing at all
