Does the AOpen MiniPC have a way to get high speed transfers to
external hard disks, like eSATA? That's what I'm missing on my Mac
mini. There are USB 2.0 and standard Firewire interfaces, that reach
only a half of the transfer speeds of modern 3,5" hard disks. However,
that's the only big MythTV related disadvantage of the Mac mini that
I'm aware of.
