Clean energy and renewables are coming, whether you like it or not. That’s where the energy jobs will be. You can get on board with it, or you can keep sharpening your harpoon while you insist that whale oil is where it’s at.
This will be a great upgrade from my 2010 21.5” iMac with SSD which is still running strong and serves my needs. But, I’m going to wait until Apple releases the 27” replacement and/or refreshed MBPs to see what kind of processor they come with. Hopefully they make an M2 available as an upgrade in the 24”.

This is what happens when you have a leader that has no understanding that there are ways to do things if you want them to stand up in court. You can’t bully and buy your way around the rule of law.

The front has an SD card slot I use constantly, along with USBa, and USBc ports for those occasional times I need to recharge/connect something.I use a 2015 iMac at the office connected to two additional thunderbolt displays, and everything else is connected cleanly to another Caldigit TS3+ dock under that standing desk too. Again, just one nice clean thunderbolt cable coming out of it under the desk to the dock with all cables neatly hidden.Doing it your way, I'd have all those cables going to the back of my iMac which would make it a rats-nest of ugliness, might strain some of the connectors, and makes for a very ugly, sloppy appearance. No thank you.My setup has all the cables neatly routed and hidden under my desk. Both my office and home setups are standing desks and every cable is neatly hidden. Super clean. I don't want any of those wires going to the back of my iMac.I've received numerous compliments by my coworkers about the cleanliness of of my desk's cable management ideas. Now others are doing the exact same thing to theirs.I prefer the least amount of cables going to the back of my iMac as it can be seen from the back. If anything, adding the ethernet jack into the power brick I think is/was a brilliant move to continue to de-clutter the back of the iMac. I think they should have went a step further and also included a USB4 port as well so along with a dock, only one cable would be needed on the back of an iMac. Perhaps they'll do that for the bigger version of the iMac.
Most home users, which is clearly the audience for this first iteration of an Apple Si iMac, are probably going to be as wireless as possible and won’t have all the extra stuff plugged in like you’ve got.
