Apple Apple has updated its line of iMac desktops, with new processors and bumped graphical specifications. They also includes an HD FaceTime camera, which is certainly useful. The most interesting feature is, of course, that they include Thunderbolt ports - one on the 21.5" model, and two on the 27" model.

Not even as an option. Also, why just one Thunderbolt port on the 21" model instead of two?

I wouldn't worry given that Thunderbolt hooks straight into the PCIe which at least in theory if Apple wanted to support USB3 all they would have to do is provide a break out box and run the protocol over Thunderbolt (given that Thunderbolt is protocol agnostic). So it would be plausible some time in the future to have a single Thunderbolt connector and then have a break out box to allow many USB3 devices to be hooked up to it.
