    Hey everyone, I've had my new 13" MBP with the touch bar for about a month now and I love it! Really haven't had any of the issues that I've read on here. Keyboard is great, battery is great, touch bar is awesome...

    But one thing that I've just recently noticed after plugging my computer into the charger was that the right side USB-C ports do not "click" in they just sort of wedge in there. I never noticed previously because I usually charge from the left side (force of habit I guess? haha)

    I just wanted to know if anyone had this issue? The ports still work but I wondered if anyone thinks it might turn into a bigger problem later on?

    It is possible it is you. Try turning the computer to facing away from you an plug in the ports.

    One side of ports gets Apple's exclusive ESE aka enhanced sensory embedding. They don't include this on the other side for cost and space reasons. They both work the same.

    If it makes you feel any better my 2016 ntbMBP only has two USB-c ports and they are SSE (standard sensory embedding).
