    Disclaimer: This may have been discussed elsewhere in the forum, but I can't find another thread specifically about this and I'd like to discuss it separately. So can the thread police please chill out. :D

    Hadn't realised this until today, but I think the USB ports on the new MBP are too close together. I went to plug in a USB stick (Cruzer Titanium - quite small) and a 3G modem (Huawei E220) via a USB cable. The two barely fit next to each other - you can see they're straining against one another.

    Is this a design flaw? I don't recall it being a problem on previous MBP versions.

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Mine is still in transit. I looked at one in store last night and didn't notice. I know I have a similar issue on my wife's Macbook.
