    The new MacBooks actually have a single port for mic/headphones. Plug in a set of headphones and they work. Plus in a set of earbuds from Apple or a third party — the ones meant for the iPhone — and you can use both the earbuds and the mic.
    BUT, if you want to use a regular mic, then you need to get a USB adapter. They are cheap, like the iMac which works great. http://macmost.com/j-imic
    Another option is to use a USB mic — there are lots of those. A USB headset is another option too.
