SFF to control SI-Mini

Hi guys, wanted your opinions/experince in a SFF computer to control the SI-Mini.
I know many of you use a laptop, usually a MAC.
Just wondering if using, say a Mac Mini would yield a smaller forma factor, increased portability.

My main objectives are:

- ability to have internal SSD in order to capture raw uncompressed from SI Mini
- proper ethernet throughput
- hdmi (or dvi) display
- ability to run from camera batteries with adapter

So the Mac Mini certainly looks like a great candidate, but I looked int other systems and came up with these, just not sure if they will be adequate:

Mini PC Shuttle XPC SG41J4 Socket 775 PCIe DDR3 Value Mini-Cube Computer System by AVADirect
Mini PC Shuttle XPC

Xi3 | Products
Xi3 Computer - really cool

Fit PC2 Ultra | Fit PC | Welcome to the Green PC Revolution
FitPC compuer - increadibly small but not sure if Atom processor is enough

So there you go, thanks for all your opinions,
