Having all the ports in the back of an iMac is not confusing. It's just annoying. But it sure does look good.I was reading an article that Apple is so focused on having the simplest, uncluttered design, sometimes it ends up being confusing in certain segments. The Mac Pro had everything in the back, the power buttons, plugs, expansion ports. Because they wanted it clean. Despite it being "Mac Pro".
Their design paradigm works extremely well for consumers, because it can become an extension of their fashion.
The times overly simplified design gets confusing is like when Apple released an iPod with no buttons at all. It was a disaster.
