You can buy a USB Hub adapter that splits the one USB port into 3 or 4 ports. You can't use it to power other hardware unless you buy a powered Hub. You can also buy a PCMCIA (PC Card) USB adapter that adds 2 or 3 USB 2.0 ports to the computer. This works only if you have a PCMCIA slot on your laptop.

Good Luck
