As stated in this post, I've been thinking of upgrading my MacBook Pro. Yesterday I came to realize none of the ports on the left hand side(save the charger) work. No USB(on that side), no audio output, no audio input, no express card slot. In addition to this, a dead pixel made itself known a couple weeks ago. It's driving me nuts! So, I think it's time to finally upgrade. I'll let you know this week what I end up with.
