    They are USB 1.1 ports.

    The only announced Mac with USB 2.0 ("High speed") ports is the new G5.

    Both witty and factually accurate. The iBooks are equipped with USB 2.0
    ports (Full speed) aka USB 1.1

    Don't get Barry's dander up; I'm sure he's fed up about this topic
    (including my devil's advocacy about terminology and specificity) on
    another group. From the USB-IF:

    | All USB 2.0-compliant systems, such as laptop, notebook, and desktop
    | computers, must by definition support all three data rates: 1.5 Mb/s,
    | 12 Mb/s, and 480 Mb/s.

    The iBook doesn't do 480Mb/s, so it's not 2.0-compliant.

    There is no such thing outside the crazed mind of journalist in Bangkok.

    A USB 2.0 host port is by definition high speed.

    I'm mighty fed up with how the rantings of one idiot can cause more
    confusion about this than 3 years of peacful existance.

    I don't see it as devils advocate, you just have some mighty

    manage to.

    Then you weren't looking carefully enough. But I think I kind of expect
    that from someone who believes that it's fair to say something like "no
    other interpretation is possible" when the whole reason the thread
    exists is that another interpretation was presented. I wasn't basing my
    comments on what a Thai journalist said - I wasn't aware of it until
    you brought it up. I was basing my comments on a reading of the
    doents that you personally cited to support your point.

    > you just have some mighty hole-filled logic and I just can't see
    > how you draw the conclusions you manage to.
    Not hole-filled logic. Just a lack of willingness to assume what's
    meant by terminology that is ambiguous and not defined within its
    context. USB-IF's recent posting on the subject disambiguated.
