    Is it just me or are the usb slots on the 13" mbp really loose? Whenever I move my laptop on my bed with a USB HD plugged in, I get the "device not removed properly" error because the usb has come ever so slightly loose.

    Is this just me? If its something wrong with my laptop I'm still inside the 14 day return period if need be.

    I have noticed that, over time my USB ports will not "match up" correctly, but never will I get the message just from moving around. I would take it to the Apple Store and see what they have to say about it. And, you can always return it.

    You are not alone. Mine are also a bit loose and i also find my external HDD manages to get the "device not removed properly." message.

    If i lived near an apple store i would check it out but because I don't i can live with it.
