I just got my new computer and I've noticed that the front USB ports (2) are quite warm, is this normal?

to be honest, i've never felt a USB port...
Hehe, me neither. I just checked the ports at the back of my notebook though, and they seem very slightly warm, but nothing uncomfortable. Should be normal, in my opinion.
