    ok... this may sound a little bizarre, but im interested to know if anyone else has experienced this problem...
    when ever i connect my printer to my new 17" macbook pro, i can feel current running through the computer... like if i touch any of the surface near the trackpad etc, i can feel it, its like touching something live, it almost zaps me! most unpleasant. i have tried it on a different printer and it does the same thing too... to a lesser extent but i can def still feel it. surely it can't be good for my computer??
    has anyone else experienced anything like this or have any advice?
    cheers
    carey
    (and yes i have tried all 3 usb ports, same thing)

    You're not the first person to encounter it. I have a PowerBook G4 that does it as well.
