    Nope, no built in microphone on the mini. If you have an Intel mini, you can plug an external mic into the back of it. If you bought a PPC mini, you'll need to buy a USB device that has a microphone input.

    Nope, but it has a Line In port so you can connect a External Mic. :)

    Thanks for the info. I don't NEED one but it would be nice to have. Can any of you guys suggest a few specific ones that are good? I got an intel core solo by the way. I probably won't buy one right away, but might within a month or so.

    Thanks, Kevin

    It really depends on what kind of quality you're looking for. I have this and it's not the most luxurious headset I've used, but it sounds good (on both ends), and fits rather well. I would recommend a headset, or use a mic with headphones if you're planning on doing any voice chat, since it really cuts down on the feedback that can start echoing back and forth if you're using speakers.

    Is this a typo or are those really $5? That has to be because that is REALLY cheap. I was looking for something a little smaller, but do those have a good overall sound? And yes, I will be using it with Skype.
