Default Macbook Pro Core .X: USB ports have different Max Speeds!

When I receive an email from my good friend from Bordeaux France, it's always a pleasure. Today it was a real surprise. It's about such a simple thing as USB ports. So what could be that new or important?

Here's the deal. Apple, it seems shares the USB buses with other devices. The result is that the "first port is almost twice slower than the second one, limited to 15 MB/s in writing and 22 MB/s in reading".

Hardmac: Proximal USB2 Port

Hardmac: Distal USB2 Port

Read the entire story here.

Thanks Nicolas for the update!
