Will it power the apple superdrive?

Love the new 27 inch iMacs but spinning them around to plug in usb devices when running a second Cinema Display in limited space is a pain. Looking for a hub that provides enough power to run an Apple Superdrive & HP USB Lightscribe burner.

    The system requirements of Apple SuperDrives require that they be plugged into compatible Apple computers only... they don't work with hubs nor PCs. Apple exceeds the USB standard for power requirements, so that's why they are peculiar.
