    Not sure if this has been clarified and I didn't see anything at the very bottom about it. It shows that you can now charge via USB. I know with the iPad 1 it would show 'not charging' but still charged very very slowly. Does this appear to have changed now?

    I don't think there has been any change
    It just depends on the USB port
    Only the later MBPs supplied enough power to show "charging"

    Also on most mac's some of the USB ports are powerful enough to charge the iPad and some aren't.

    As in the first USB is powerful enough but the rest aren't.
