The first Macs with USB 3.0 were introduced in June 2012

Macs do not currently have USB 3.0. The newest generation of Macs (2011 MacBook Pro and 2011 iMac) feature the Thunderbolt Port instead.

UPDATED JUNE 2012:
The first Macs with USB 3.0 were introduced at WWDC.

Check out the USB 3.0 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.

*** basically usb3.0 support picks up directly where firewire 800 support ends, in 2011/2012
the mid-2012 macbook pro models are the only ones that have both firewire 800 + usb 3.0
