    I was reading through Macrumors and read the one of about the new Mini being possibly released in January with Intel processor and with DVR... which got me thinking... if they released a Mini with all those new features, larger HD, Ipod doc, DVR outputs, TV Card, the mini may cease to be Mini....

    Then I was at the Mac store in Seoul... and I noticed a few Mini expansion hubs kit things... i saw the same on I saw in the US, ones with external HDs and a few extra slots (forgot the name of it)... looks like an extra mini that you stack on top of each other... then I saw one I've never seen before... it looked just like a mini that you stack on... but it had an HD and a TV card with extra ports in the back so you can use it as a DVR... it was very seemless and even the packaging looked like it was from Apple...

    This got me thinking... will the Mac Mini have all those features in one standalone box.. maybe a little bigger than the current mini. or do you thik they'll offer an expansion box.... that would be kinda cool too.... or i guess they could offer several different models... entry level with limited multi media functions and maybe a bigger one with all the extras...

    anywho.. i'm definetly getting one when it comes out with DVR.... hook it up to my PlasmaR tv!! .ehehe

    I would snatch up an Apple DVR/set-top box/mini 2.0 immediately after launch, providing it can record and display high definition.
