    Hi, I have exactly the same USB Hub (Its a nice bit of kit). Bought from the same place too. And yes it will work with the mini.

    When a hubmaker says G5 and up, what they mean is only recent models Mac have USB 2, so they can't advertise it as being a USB 2 hub for a Mac that doesn't have the 2.o support. You can take for granted that any USB 2 hub is also compatible with USB 1.1 on any Mac.

    Now whether your USB peripheral's software drive will work whilst connected through a hub (any hub) rather than directly to the back of the Mac, is a different story.

    Thanks
