My USB ports are so tight, I have started to see veins on my neck when trying to plug in or unplug devices.

i suppose they are being different to apple, where things come out easily to avoid dropping the laptop on your foot. this way, if you drop and alienware on your foot (especially the m17x) you will make sure it never happens again.

In the battle between your foot and an M17x your foot will inevitably be destroyed...

Same, the left side USBs (which are 2.0) are very tight, while the right side ones (3.0) are fine/loose.

Ahh...I thought it was just me. Just got my system tonight. Tried to put the TacX mouse into one of the 2.0 ports and it would NOT go, so I just used one of the 3.0 ones on the other side...went in fine.

Awesome. You will enjoy the system, tight USB ports or not.

Haha, it seems that this post is becoming more useful than I thought. It helps all the new Alien owners.
