Mac mini: Next generation to support dual displays?

AppleInsider is reporting that the next-generation Mac mini might have the ability to drive dual displays. According to their sources, "those familiar with the company's plans say the small form factor desktop will have both the Mini DisplayPort connector first introduced on unibody MacBooks but also a Mini DVI connector. The reason for the addition is unclear, though it would potentially give the budget Mac dual display support that it has lacked since it was introduced as a PowerPC G4 model in 2005."

The ability to drive dual displays would come as welcome news. Until this point, Mac mini users have been relying on the DualHead2Go from Matrox or DisplayLink technology to drive more than one display. As many of you know, the Mac mini has only included a single DVI connector since being introduced in 2005.

That being said, I can't confirm the validity of this rumor about the next-generation Mac mini having more than one display port. It could still come with a single Mini DisplayPort connector though. Apple would then more than likely include a Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter in the box with the Mac mini. This would make it compatible with most displays on the market, and eliminate the need for a DVI connector or another adapter. I mean, if the focus hasn't moved to adding support for dual displays.

Hopefully, we'll find out soon enough.
