    I am not sure if someone was drunk when they said hey, Let's put the SC Card Slot in the back of the Mini"

    I understand it is out of the way, but why in the rear? why not on the side because after testing one out at the Apple store, I would have to move my Mini everytime to use it???

    Some things just make me wonder who comes up with this stuff??? :eek:

    Another Firewire800 and USB port would've been better.

    cause it costs money to cut a slit in the front, and takes away from its Unibody design, besides most people care less about the SDcard slot, since most us have one or 2 USB card readers for this kind of stuff.:p

    Be thankful

    That you aren't an iMac owner with a blind SD card slot right next to the optical drive slot. Got to the iMac forum and check out the tales of woe from people who got their SD cards stuck in their Superdrives by accident.

    Remember, this is Apple. Form over function every time. Thinking about it, be grateful that the optical drive slot isn't on the side instead of the front.
