OK so my laptop is an Acer Aspire 5050 and has only 3 usb ports. I need 4 minimum for my carpc. (wifi adapter, liliput touch, gps, external harddrive). I tried a cheap usb hub that is not externally powered. It acts up and sometimes doesn't power both devices or it will power only 1 of them. I am thinking my power output is at its maximum especially with the harddrive and wifi adapter. I am looking at purchasing this on ebay. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/4-Port-USB-2-...#ht_1912wt_752 But would like to know if the PCMCIA will draw power from my already maxed out usb or is it a seperate power source? I just need this to plug in one device. Any ideas? or thoughts?
