One thing sort of being missed about the new 2012 Mac minis, with integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics, is the support for using two Thunderbolt displays across the product line now. That wasn't the case with the 2011 Mac minis. Only the 2.5GHz model with AMD Radeon HD 6630M graphics supported using two Thunderbolt displays. The entry-level and server models with integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics only supported the use of one.
You can daisy-chain as many as six Thunderbolt devices - including two Apple Thunderbolt Displays - to a single port. And since Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, Mini DisplayPort devices like the Apple LED Cinema Display plug right in, too.
