    You mean to use the iMac as a display for the xBox? Sorry...the new iMacs only accept video input from other Mac's thunderbolt output. You could get a video capture card like elgato but it would put in a lag

    There is not currently an option to use your iMac screen for your Xbox.

    AppleCare is a personal choice. I got it with mine. You have a whole year to make up your mind as you are covered until then anyhow.
    Enjoy your new iMac.
