So Job's says 5, the article's author says same as hte old iMac: 3.


Can someone please doublecheck what I just read at Apple.com and saw in a jpeg of the back of the new iMac?


As my eyes tell me, there are now 3 USB ports in place of the former 2.


THAT MAKES 4 USABLE USB PORTS. THE OLD iMAC ONLY HAD 3.


Now about the question of controllers.


One controller is dedicated to one port. This port is for your keyboard as it' going to basically make that one port into two.


The other controller has the other 2 USB ports on the base.


2 ports per controller. No crazy math. No plugin headaches for power users.



Maybe a little more crack for Mr. Jobs and the author? :-)
