This looks like a super accessory for a new Mac Mini:

Any word on availability and price?

Thanks!

So, out of all the ports on the back of that device, how does it interface with the host computer?

It's still a few months out, likely July-August.
Price still TBD
Connectivity will be like the previous miniStack models. USB uplink to control the ports in the hub, card reader, CD drive. Either the USB uplink used for hard drive connectivity, or if you have a FireWire connection or eSATA connection, they would take priority for the hard drive connectivity only.



Good Luck!

Sigh!! (I don't want to wait that long!)

Thanks for the response! I guess I'll get the matching Apple SuperDrive.

I love my current MiniStack 2.5!

I personally think this product (or a variant of it) should have Thunderbolt for one cable connectivity, which then breaks out to a USB hub, FW800, eSATA for another drive, etc. smiling smiley But that would probably be too expensive for the Mac Mini crowd.
