It comes with one

It comes with one in the box, a Mini-HDMI to DVI adapter, since it's that or Mini-DisplayPort for output options. At least it looks like a Mini-HDMI port to me. Seems about maybe 75% of the size of the ports on my receiver, but I'll accept that there's a possibility I'm wrong and it's regular sized. I really didn't spend a lot of time looking at it.
Had one come across my desk at work which needed a new fan and DVD drive. One of the big problems with the Mini has always been it relies on a single fan to cool the entire thing, so if the fan goes out, or just doesn't perform to spec, you've got problems. But the new Mini is much easier to work on compared to the old ones, with the exception of the sensor board they solder to the side of the drives. So if you break one of those annoying little vertical insert cables, the entire drive has to be replaced. It also limits your options for using off the shelf parts.
