    I spose the USB ports would be used for expansions such as harddrives and the like.
    CPU stands for Centeral Processing Unit and is bretty much the "brain" of any computer or, i spose, console. The GPU stands for the Graphics Processing Unit, and is resposible for, well, the graphics.
    And the Wii is suposed to connect to the internet via a Wi-Fi connection.
    What do you call a button masher on the Wii?

    I think the USB is used to connect the Wii to the internet.

    The USB can be used for multiple purpose. It can connect to the internet for those people without wireless internet connection.

    Nothing is confirmed for the USB ports, but it will likely be for storage.
    The Wii will connect through WiFi, just like the DS (I can say for sure that the USB ports on the console will *not* be used for internet, if you don't have a WiFi router, there is a USB key that plugs into your computer, not the console)

    CPU-Central processing unit, processes all the data that goes through the computer/console (kind of like the brain, as stated earlier)
    GPU-Graphical processing unit, responsible for controlling graphics
    ... but what do I know?...
