Apple's USB keyboard has a hub built in so you can plug your USB mouse
into it instead of into the motherboard USB. I assume other brands would
have this feature too.
Also you could order the internal Bluetooth option and go with a cordless
desktop leaving both USB ports free.
USB hubs seem to be a no-brainer anyway, I've got a non-powered one that I
use to attach two USB printers via one USB port. It was very cheap (<=A310
inc VAT from Maplin).
I'm ordering a Mac Mini as soon as I get the Xmas credit card bills out of
the way :-)
