    is this true for all ports, and not just the first one?

    Yeah I just read that article about being able to charge iPad. Nice. Although the old ones could do it even when it says not charging. Just a bit slower.

    My 2010 MacBook Pros at work refuse to power a mouse and USB flash drive off of the Keyboard. I have yet to see one actually power both off the 1 USB port.

    I beg to differ...
    I power a mouse and my 16 usb stick of the keyboard.
    I then have a 4 usb adapter powering 320 gig, 500 gig and 750 gig WD elementals + charge my shuffle. It never once complains.

    There's been reports that both USB ports are quite high powered.
