Mac mini: How about some dual-drive action?

One of the more fascinating rumors about the next Mac mini (assuming it retains the name plate) is about Apple switching the optical drive connection from IDE to SATA. Not only would this increase the performance of the optical drive, it would allow you to swap out the optical drive itself for a second 2.5" SATA hard drive. Based on what's on the market today, this would bring up to 1TB of internal storage to the Mac mini. In fact, rumor has it that Apple will offer the Mac mini configured this way as a build-to-order option. So, that leads me to my question. How would you order your Mac mini, with an optical drive or two internal hard drives? Now don't forget, you might be able do this upgrade on your own and save some money. However, there may be cosmetic (like a case without an optical drive slot) and internal (like including a real drive cage) features you can only get from Apple.
