I was one of the many that wanted an HDMI in the Mini. Now Im not trying to complain that it doesnt have one, I understand Apple not wanting to completely cannibalize the Apple TV. While reading the forums around the time of the new Mini release, the two main arguments I read against HDMI in the Mini was the HDMI licensing fee, and the fact that one of the HD audio formats (TrueHD?) wasnt supported through HDMI. Hypothetically, if Apple added an HDMI to the Mini, in addition to the Mini DisplayPort, Mini-DVI, and Optical out, maybe at the sacrifice of one of the 5 USB ports, everyone would be happy in terms of video-out options. My question refers to the licensing fee primarily. Im not sure what the HDMI licensing fee is, but there is HDMI on the Apple TV, so its not like Apple is totally boycotting it, and theyve already worked it into one of their products, so it shouldnt be that hard to work it into the Mini. How much would the retail price ($599/$799) of the Mini increase if HDMI was included because of the licensing fee? Is it a reasonable cost, a few dollars per unit, $50 per unit, etc?
