“Why are the USB ports on my MacBook on the left side when everyone uses a mouse on the right?  I hate sloppy wires.” -Whine by Michael

There are actually two great reasons for that:

  1. It’s easier for cable management and connecting/disconnecting everything if all of the ports are on one side.
  2. If a USB mouse plugs in on the right, the plug and wire intrude directly into your mousing space, so you have to keep the mouse further away from the computer than the range that many people find comfortable.
