I'm really considering upgrading from my 15" MacBookPro mid-2009 but I am concerned about how I can best utilize the limited number of ports that I would have.
Here is what I currently have attached to my MBP:
- WIN TV 950 so that I can watch my local TV channels (via USB)
- 1 TB Iomega eGo for my Time Machine backup (via FireWire 800)
- 500 GB WD Mybook portable for the TV programs I record and for testing Mountain Lion (attached via FireWire to the Iomega drive)
- my Ipad and ipod touch I also plug into a USB port
Because I still use optical media (CDs and DVDs) I will be getting the Apple USB Superdrive
I am thinking of replacing the 2 Firewire drives with a 2 TB USB 3.0 drive,since there is no Firewire port, but I'm still short on USB ports.
Any suggestions on how I can connect these peripherals to the new MBP Retina?
