iMacs are even worse. Other than for cosmetic appearance, I can't say I understand why all the connections are at the bottom of the back panel, which is just about the most inaccessible place for most users. It's a fine place for fixed peripherals, ethernet, power cables and the like, but not for places to plug in portable peripherals and the latest model even puts the card slot ot the back, which for something that sells itself as a hub for digital media is utterly perverse.
