3 options:

a) you are either extremely unlucky,
b) whatever USB device you're using is messed up, not the laptops
c) you are ignorant to what static electricity is

gonna go with C
lawl!

The best part was when I got to call India every other week and explain that they were idiots for sending refurbished screens since they all had dead pixels and it would be much easier to just send a new screen and save everyone time. After everything it only took them until October of 2010 to finally fix all the problems.
sounds like my toshiba!

As far as I know static doesn't cause a continual current. Now correct me if I'm wrong there, but I've been working with computers for years. I'm pretty sure I know what static is thanks, whats done with is done with.

They admitted to the faults on their end and are sending me a new laptop.

When the USB port zapped you, was it a quick shock, or did it incessantly electrocute you for as long as you left your finger there?

Static shock through the USB port is an extremely common occurance with every laptop. Your static builds up (especially in the winter), and has no way of discharging through the plastic frame; it does have a great medium to go through in the form of the metal USB port.
