    Question Audio Input for Macbook Pro
    Hello:
    I didn't realize that my Macbook Pro did not have an audio input until after I purchased it. Do you know of any simple USB line or mic input devices that are self powered?

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    Every MBP has an audio input. What MBP do you have?

    The current 13" MBPs have a combined input/output port - same as the mic/headphone port on the iPhone.

    It is selectable in System Preferences / Sound.

    Hello:

    I have the 15" Macbook Pro, but I was amazed at you reply. I will certainly try that suggestion. If that is correct, then the local Mac dealer that sold me my computer did not inform me correctly.

    Thanks a lot.

    Yeppers, the 15" definitely has a separate audio in port.
