- I've got a late 2010 macbook-pro, I can't identify if usb ports will be powerfull enough to charge the new-ipad. I've only read along the web "newer mac can, older can't". Can someone help me identify if late-2010 is an old or young enough macbook pro ?
- Is it technically and commercially possible that we'll see a "speedier" charger to come onto the market oneday ?
No. You might have a fire hose charger but it's still connected to a garden hose iPad input connector that accepts no more than two amps.
Thanks for your answers!
"Note: Apple computers and displays that were introduced before 2007 support only 500 mA at 5 V from their ports and do not offer additional power."
Crossing with other reads, new-iPad will maybe charge veeery slowly on my mbp with screen/wifi shutted down. Not useful!
And ok/thanks for an impossible "faster" charger explanation..
