    3 Laptop & related questions

    Questions are related to possible use of a (pending) Lenovo, thin laptop instead of current Lenovo ThinkCentre desktop machine-- 1. Problem: Not enough USB ports. I've consistently had not great success with port extenders. I haven't cheaped out--used Anker products. After a number of months use either ports will 'disappear' or seemingly not have enough power or... Is this problem my bad luck, a fact of life with extenders, the brand, the number of USB ports (~7) on the extender? One of the USB ports would be used for an external (image backup) drive. 2. Problem: 'If' the laptop were to be closed and a keyboard placed on top, apart from the obvious having the wrist too high off the desktop (though I've seen angled wrist rests), is there any reason not to just leave the machine on and only lift the lid for a hard boot? 3. Alternatively, assuming one edge of the laptop did not have cable attachments, is there any reason not to have the machine (again) closed but on an edge out of the way allowing for more desktop real estate?
