Will it work OK on a powered USB hub? It's just my external hard drive doesn't so I have run out of USB ports on my MacBook now.

it wil work on anyUSB port or even an UNPOWERED Hub. keyboards and mice draw very little current so can be used anywhere - only external hard drives and iPods and other devices need the full 500MA of a direct connection and short lead as these draw the full current in use.
other devices fall somewhere in between
