USB HUB's

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, I just bought a 2012 Macbook Pro 13" already max out in upgrades so it runs smoothly. The one problem I really have is that I only have 2 USB ports and that just doesn't works for me I need at least 7 for peripherals such as mouse, keyboard, sound card, EHDD and so on, preferably 10 usb ports for anything extra that i would like to connect. The real question here is, what usb hub is the best in this case? I think speed is not as important for all to work good but im not sure. Hope you can help me.

sound card

A USB sound card? Really? I don't know how much better it would be than the onboard your Mac already has. This seems like something you could omit to save space imo.

Yeah probably... For example the speakers I have are from centuries ago they are powered by usb. I'm still new to Mac environment so I have a lot of things to learn.

Just use any decent headset and you should be fine. Or if you really want external speakers, a simple 2.1 kit from your local store should suffice. (of course I'm assuming you're not looking for highend audio)

I was looking forward for some studio monitors cause all the video editing (edm photographer and videographer) so i kinda need the highend audio, but not that kind of money LOL
