    I only connect to a USB port when needed (e.g., external HDD, a flash drive, dowloading pics form phone,etc.)

      Desktop has 4 ports in the rear, 2 in front. I have an external hard drive, a printer, and the receiver for wireless keyboard and mouse connected. I used to plug my camera cable in but lately I have been using the card reader in the printer.

      Laptop has 4 ports, usually have a wireless mouse connected and the ipod when it needs to be charged or synched.

          It's a generic Chinese-made with no brand name on it actually. It doesn't get much use, just when I'm working on hard drives. I might get a nicer SATA cable one since I have an external SATA port now.

          External SATA ports = hot swappable ? ?
          I may just go that route then...i have a spare Seagate SATA 500G.

          Yep- SATA is a hot-swappable interface.

          Obviously not a good idea to hot-swap boot drives, though.
          I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

          I guess so. The new hot swap box I'm looking at says it uses an external SATA connection
