This is my Mac Mini in a 1U Sonnet Rackmac Mini with the Sonnet Thunderbolt ExpressCard Adapter housing the Sonic Core ExpressCard.

I use the two USB ports at the front of the Rackmac Mini to connect the keyboard/mouse to the Mac (and a USB stick or an iLok for example). There are even more USB ports in the rack panel above the XITE-1. Some of these are connected to the Mac Mini and the other ones to a USB hub that is attached to the iConnectMIDI 4+ (for MIDI controllers). There are also some Ethernet ports in the panel. Both the USB and Ethernet ports are actually just Neutrik feed-through connectors.
