    They’d only make that if it had more display port options too. I mean, people want the regular d-sub 15 and composite video, and HDMI, and an RF connector would make it really useful too.

  2. Halloween Jack says:

    That’s almost enough to accomodate all the crap that Brando sells.

  3. scaught says:

    Make it 65 HDMI ports and we have a deal!

  4. Rob Beschizza says:

    Excellent idea, Bardfinn!

    I want HDMI too; I’m hoping for a new mac mini to be a good general purpose living room computer, incorporating all the apple TV goodness.

    I’m not quite where Dean gets his information but all currently shipping Macs have Firewire ports. Some 400, some 800, some both. Apple’s not dumping IEEE 1394 quite yet…

  6. lectroid says:

    yeah, you can tell by the pixels.

    and i’ve seen some ‘shops before.

    The JPEG artifacts don’t line up.

    Da Whoop!

    @Dean: @Zathras:
    I wouldn’t say that firewire is being phased out, as FW800 appeared for the first time on the iMac with the last refresh. A mini with only FW800 would be consistent, as the new MacBook Pro’s have only FW800 at this point.

    However, the current Macbook has no firewire. And no way to add it, as it also has no expresscard slot.

    Dear sweet baby Jeebus, hear my prayer!

    HDMI on the refreshed Mac Mini!

    THAT would be my perfect all in one media center.

  14. killdeer says:

    I’m waiting until theres one with OVER 9000

    Post Some Ports.

    Imagine a beowulf cluster of those USB ports.

  18. muteboy says:

    no firewire?

  19. muteboy says:

    for that matter, no centronics? no kempston joystick?

  20. Dean says:

    One of the things that bothers me about these new “leaked” Macs is that they still have Firewire ports on them. Yes, Firewire is great, but Apple seems to be phasing it out pretty quickly. Only the Macbook Pro has a Firewire port amongst all of their laptops, so why should the lowliest desktop maintain one? Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense if you ask me.

  22. Anonymous says:

    I have no plans to purchase until 127 ports… I feel like this model cheats me 62 ports!

  23. dimmer says:

    Retaining Firewire may be to appease users who bought external drives to beef up the pretty low capacity of the original Mini. Personally, I doubt the Mini will have it, but you never know.

  24. Nrbelex says:

    This is Photoshopped.

    I can tell ‘cos of the pixels
