    Macbook Pro Zaps Me
    Hiya, I have a newish intel macbook pro 17", slightly shy of a year old. Recently, it has zapped me. One time i had a hand on the casing and brushed a usb cable which was attatched at one end to my (powered and plugged in) printer - zap. Another time i brushed a metal light. Is this normal behaviour for a big metal box, or is something going wrong with the insulation?

    The problem is not with your MBP but with improper grounding of your AC mains. Better get it repaired before someone gets their heart started when it doesn't need starting!
