iDave's Mac mini generation 2 concept...
My Mac mini generation 2 concept includes 4 USB 2.0 ports, 2 FireWire ports, Audio-in and out. I dumped the modem to make room for the extra USB ports.

RJ11 & RJ45 can both be usb dongles (if necessary)... add more ieee1394!! or vga

don't forget to add 2x usb, 2x firewire, cf & sd to front, also need power connector locks a bit better than original

anyone able to connect a pc card to mini ?

Modem and 100M ethernet can share the same jack. Ether uses pins 1, 2, 3 and 6. Phone lines use 4 and 5. You wouldn't want to plug a 6-wire phone cable into an 8-wire jack (since it could damage the jack), but an adapter cable would be trivially simple to make.

great ... specify the audio out as a combo jack/optical a la 17" powerbook/airport express and you've got a winner !!

I still want MiniDV out or Svideo out or Composite Video out....

If you add an extra memory bay inside and a standard 7200 rpm HD, than would this be my next mini!

G5geek [Mar 13, 2006 at 08:40 PM]

why does you all have such a problem with the upsidedown USB? flip the cord for god's sakes!
dungeon92 [Apr 25, 2006 at 08:52 PM]
for dual support RJ-45 and RJ-11 ports as one the RJ-11 port is a bit to tall to fit in the RJ-45 port, but otherwise it's a good idea just I don't mind rightside up USB.

Guess I was kinda close. I've been working on a few new concept designs for the Mac mini. I'll try to post them when they're done.

There's one thing missing, an external SATA (II) connector. I have one
