Forums: S-Video and Audio-in?
Saturday February 25, 2006 9:58 AM EST

It appears that AOpen and Shuttle are trying to steal a little bit of Apple's thunder before they have a chance to unveil the new Mac mini. Both companies have provided the press a sneak peak at their new small-form-factor PCs that will be unveiled at CeBIT 2006 next month. AOpen's new MiniPC will feature a proprietary motherboard design that houses a Pentium M socket, Intel 945GT core logic, DDR2-SODIMM memory banks, and mini-PCI expansion slot. The AOpen MiniPC also includes a built-in S-Video port and audio-in.

Shuttle's new XPC X100 will run Windows XP Media Center Edition. A typical XPC X100 will include a 1.83GHz Core Duo T2400 processor, 512MB of dual-channel DDR 2 SDRAM, ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 video card, 250GB Serial ATA II hard drive, HD Audio, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11a/b/g connectivity, four-in-one memory card reader, four USB 2.0 ports, one six-pin FireWire connector, and more. The XPC X100 will also include a built-in S-Video port and audio-in like the AOpen MiniPC.

This got us thinking about the chances of Apple adding a built-in S-Video port and audio-in to the new Mac mini. We think there is a strong possibility that Apple will add an audio-in jack to the new Mac mini. We are not as sure about the built-in S-Video port, since Apple already offers the $19 DVI to Video Adapter.

So tell us what you think. Do you think Apple will add built-in S-Video and audio-in to the next Mac mini?
