    How can a notebook not have a standard headphone jack? Maybe I'm missing something here. I should not have to go out and spend $100 on wireless headphones when my $10 sony earbuds work fine. I can't believe the way these companies are thinking by omitting valuable peripherals. Wow, I'm just in shock.

    I think you missed it. There is a headphone port on the right side.

    Oh my bad. I just thought the only port was the new USB 2C connector. A moderator can close this thread.

    Does someone have photos of the ports on both sides they can post here? I can't exactly search for it at this moment.

    I'll believe there's a headphone jack when I see it.

    They showed it on the Apple event. I'm sure one of the live blogs has a photo. So many people are thinking no headphone jack because of the way Apple worded the USB-C connector as one port for everything, but there is a headphone jack.

    So, good bye to all those Logitech mouses with old USB connector?


    OR

    Are they working on something to compliment the old users?

    They'll probably sell an overpriced adapter to get the old style USB back.
