You can never have enough USB ports. To make the best of the two or three ports on your laptop, try using something chic like this USB Turnable Hub ($15) available in white or black. The cool flower design gives it some girl appeal, plus it's portable enough to carry anywhere. It has four USB pivoting ports that support up to 480 mbps transfers. They work with both PC and Macs, so you don't have an excuse not to own one.
