The photo shows the rear of a Mac mini that includes five USB ports instead of 4, both mini DVI and Mini DisplayPort connectors, and FireWire 800 instead of 400 -- all of which were specifications for a next-generation Mac mini first published by AppleInsider back in January (1, 2).
For what it's worth, this is the second picture of a Mac mini seen by AppleInsider with such a port makeup, the first of which we were asked not to publish. While we cannot vouch for the authenticity of this new photo, it shows a Mac mini that is identical in every way to the system in the unpublished photo, which was said to be a prototype from last fall.

Apple Insider received a picture of what may be Apple's next-generation Mac mini. The system reportedly features a 2Gz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 3MB L2 cache, 2GB DDR3 memory clocked at 1066MHz and a ATA Super Drive.
