I did my research and users said in in 2008, in 2009 and 2010 and I just discovered it! The 2 USB ports on MacBook Pro are TOO CLOSE. There are too many things I cannot plug in at the same time, for instance my memory stick and my external hard drive. Does Mac ever learn or has it completely given up on its MBPs? I know, some will say buy an extension. But why?
