Apple's 2011 MacBook Pro laptops have been on the market for several months now, and there's one port that has resolutely refused to be used in the way it's intended.

The iPad 2, Steve Jobs took to the stage to tell us, offers twice the performance of the original iPad and 9x the graphics performance, thanks to its dual-core 1GHz Apple A5 processor.
