Data storage of course. And my knock off iPod. Using a USB mouse is pretty good. It makes connections easier if you tend to get into the guts of your computer for what ever reason. Don't like a USB keyboard though. Unless " They've" improved on them it makes getting into your CMOS a little tricky. Now scanners and cameras are great. Everything is made so much easier with USB. And if your ports are limited and you haven't got around to getting a hub or installing cards, well again the ease of making the connections can make up for that.
