Is my Mid 2012 MBP fitted with USB3 ?
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 ?
Head for everymac.com to find out just about everything hardware wise for every mac.
Try this link - scroll down to physical differences and a couple of videos they have.
But, according to my understanding:
A USB 3 port (female) will accept a USB 2 plug (male).
A USB 2 port (female) will not accept a USB 3 plug (male).
(Will = is suppose to)
thanks "bobtomay" that site is very informative
that screenshot also shows the answer to my question, thanks.
I'm so use to having to go look up other people's hardware specs, seems I always forget to let folks know about checking in 'About This Mac' for their own hardware. Thanks for the reminder.
