hi All, I have had it from two different Apple Store techies a different answer to my question.

Is my Mac Book Pro 15" Mid 2012 fitted with USB 3 ?

And how do I find out ?

I have a USB3 "My Passport" 2TB portable drive which has a USB3 input socket, the cable it came with has a USB 2 plug on the other end, so it can be used on a computer with only USB2, making it downward compatible .

So please do MacBookPro's with USB3 have a USB3 socket in them which will not accept a USB2 plug ?.

Has anybody got an explanation please ?
