    Headphone jack is located on the side on the desktop computer???? Who wants speaker cable dangling from the side all the time going to external powered speakers, instead of neatly tucked behind the screen and out of sight?

    The iMac is thinner than the length of a headphone jack. If you plugged it into the back, it would stick out the front. That's why they had to put the jack on the side. Same reason they put it on the side of an iPhone or iPad.

    Only neanderthal luddites use headphone jacks.
    Or people who want high quality sound. Perhaps you missed the news about Apple's new lossless audio?

    My $500 Xbox series X came with a 1TB SSD.  Come on apple.
    lol - the storage in your Xbox is no where near the performance level of whats in the iMac.
    2.4gb/s for the Xbox vs between 2.7 and 3.5Gb/s for the iMac

    The iMac is better, but not by nearly the margin you suggest.
