Mac Mini at the Macworld Expo

Stocks in this article: AAPL NVDA

SAN FRANICSO -- A new Apple (AAPL - Get Report) Mac mini is slated to launch at Macworld 2009. The big news here is that the new model will include a Mini DVI connector as well as a Mini DisplayPort. With these two new connecting points, users could enable two displays at the same time.

Also, if you have a Mac or plan on picking one up, you might want to consider security. Check out these security locks for Macs.

Now more about the mini Mac.

A new Apple Mac mini is supposed to launch at Macworld 2009. The big news here is that the new model will include a Mini DVI connector as well as a Mini DisplayPort.

With these two new connecting points, users could enable two displays at the same time, and with the addition of the NVIDIA (NVDA - Get Report) chipset, this ends up making the Apple Mac mini a much more robust machine.

In the past, I've used Mac mini's as uber external drives, but with this additional hardware, this could be a great media gadget for both the home or office.

If you have a Mac, or plan on picking one up, you might want to consider security. Whether you want to lock a desktop unit to a desk, or need to secure a laptop while on the road, there are lots of solutions here.

The Apple Dual Component Security Slot Lock I looked at can be used on desktops, laptops or even monitors, but I was looking for a solution for notebooks.

There are two parts to this lock, including one 6' steel security cable and one stainless steel lock. It's easy to install, and works with the built-in security slot.

What I liked about this particular lock is that unlike some other models, this one is not electronic and does not require batteries, so the chances of it being rendered null are better.

Of note on this particular lock: It will only fit with 12" and 15" models, not the 17" ones.
