    Guys I'm not trying to sound picky but whenever I plug in a usb cable on my umbp, it feels like it wobbles or if its not going in place. Also, when I push the cable up or down, I could see the other free usb port moving a little bit. Is it me or is it normal?:D

    Normal. It's just the logic board flexing, and all computers do it.

    You should see the front USB ports on these Dell Optiplexes we have at work. You're lucky to get them lined up flush with the case to start, and not move all over the place when you plug something in!!

    The USB ports are quite secure on my early '08 MBP. The fact that the USB ports are moving together has to do with the fact that they are all attached to the logic board, not the computer case.
