What's the total amount of displays you can use with the default ports on a 2012 Mac mini? Can it be two with Thunderbolt and one with HDMI?

Two. One with HDMI and another one with Thunderbolt. Or you can use two Thunderbolt displays. The only Mac mini to support three displays was the 2011 model with AMD graphics.

I'm hoping we get that functionality back in the next Mac mini with either a dedicated card or switchable graphics. It seems like the Mac mini has been more popular when Apple offers something beyond the latest integrated option from Intel. I guess they could also go with Iris, which would make a lot of people happy as well. Then again, I'm not sure if that would support a three display setup either.

Thanks for the information. I purchased a refurbished 2011 model with AMD graphics this morning. I was eventually looking to do something with three displays. Especially from within Mavericks when it comes out.
