products join the previously announced Keyspan USB Card, a PCI card which
offers a simple and affordable way to add USB to the existing generation of
Power Macintosh computers.
Keyspan USB Hub After a user connects their mouse and keyboard to an iMac
there is one USB port available for connecting additional USB devices. Many
iMac users will require additional USB capacity. The Keyspan USB Hub
provides four ports for connecting USB devices to the iMac. Available in
late September at a list price of $69, the hub is backed by a five year
warranty and 30-day money back guarantee.

is backed by a five year warranty and a 30-day money back guarantee.
