    No line-in port on the new iMac!

    I used a mid-2010 iMac for several years, using the line-in port on the back next to the earphone jack to get audio into Logic Express, GarageBand, etc. I just bought a new iMac, and the line-in port is GONE!! How do I get audio into the OS and thence to GarageBand? I have a USB mic, but I also want to input an electric guitar and other audio stuff.
    Thanks,

    In a word, "No". It looks like I will have to purchase an audio input/output device that takes XLR or phone plug input with USB output. It's probably better sound, anyway.
