No Built-in iPod Docks in the Intel Mac mini?

Appleinsider reports that the upcoming Mac mini will not have a built-in iPod dock that had been previously rumored in November.

Apple has reportedly scrapped such plans for a built-in iPod dock at least once before. The site speculates that the reasons include sacrificing an additional revenue stream as well as limitations in future upgrades to the dock connector.

Appleinsider expects the new Intel Mac mini to start production in the next few weeks with an introduction within a month after that. Specs are expected to be 1.67GHz Intel Core Solo processor, 512MB RAM, and Front Row.

Similar specs were predicted in November, but no confirmation of Digitial Video Recorder (DVR) software is available.
