My previous laptop had a lot of disadvantages, but at least it had three USB ports. The iBook only has two.
Considering I need one of them to plug the mouse (yes, I use a mouse), that only leaves one left, which means that, of the following, I can only do one at a time:
- use the Airclick to control iTunes
- charge (or update) the iPod
- plug an external disk to make backups
- plug a USB pen to copy something to someone
- use Bluetooth (yes, it's external)
