Well, the 15" model has always only had one USB on the left side, and previously the FW400 and Ethernet were right next to each other. The 17" model has two USB ports on the left; and the FW800 between Ethernet and FW400 on the right side.SiriusExcelsior said:Just looking at the promotional pics from Apple NZ, I don't see the firewire port beside the 2 USB ports on the left side.. so I'm guessing it's on the right... unless Apple NZ neglected to update the pictures.. wouldn't put it past them to do that actually
UPDATE: Just saw the pic at the top of the specs page at Apple NZ.. and there's one less USB port on this pic (ie. there's only 1 USB port on the left).. so i'm guessing Apple NZ did forget/didn't bother to update the pic.. but either way, the Firewire port isn't on the left hand side.
UPDATE 2: I shud finish reading the page before posting here . On the design page at Apple NZ it clearly shows the FW800 port between the FW400 port and the Ethernet port on the right hand side.
I assume that the newly-added FW800 port is on the right side, so that the right side of the 15" MBP now matches the right side of the 17" MBP. But I was curious to find out for sure. (I wish they would have added that third USB port in, too... I have exactly three USB devices that I plug into my MBP, so it seems like a waste of a USB hub...)
