Having problems with your Lenovo ThinkPad X301 Notebook ?

Is there a USB switch like a KVM switch? Where do I go for the best price on such an item?

Answers :

All you need is a USB hub, I suggest you get a powered type because if any USB device you connect into this USB hub that draws excess power from the laptop, you will get an error power message. A powered USB hub does not rely on power from the laptop's USB port.
\015\012These USB hubs allow you to connect several USB devices at once. Most USB hubs have 4 USB ports.
