The iMac was a positively brilliant departure from conventional computer design, but the USB mouse and keyboard were less than brilliant departures from the norm.

There’s a lot to like about the iMac: styling, size, price, value, and a willingness to venture into new territory. Face it: No Wintel company has completely abandoned their traditional ports to go exclusively USB.
