Counting what's connected and what's *essential* to run those...

Counting every thing that's connected to my Mac:

The mac itself has two USB cables, a power cable, speaker cable, audio in, ethernet, and DVI cable.

One of those USB cables goes to a hub with three more cables hooked to it. It can be powered, but I usually don't plug it in. The other cable goes to an external harddrive that needs a power cable. The speakers have their own power cable, and often have headphones hooked into them. The audio in is connected to my gamecube (add another power cable) because my computer speakers are the best speakers I have. It's also handy for recording the good music from the games. The ethernet cable goes to a switch that has its own power cable. I won't go into everything else connected to the network. The DVI cable goes to an external monitor with its own power cable.

So adding it all up, I have 18 for the Mac and its "peripherals". I have to use the term losely if I count the gamecube. If I add in the optional power cable for the USB hub, that's 19. That should be everything that's typically connected, only counting power cables for the peripherals and not counting additional cables connected to them.

Not bad for a Powerbook, huh?
