Understood. I've already explored the schematic, seven or eight times since buying both two years ago, Saturday. However that schematic is out of date. This is an ATmega168 based device, ideally it should be a 328 based one, but that's what the vendor had available.
I meant regarding the Tx and Rx positions on the middle left of the device, and the pins. Are these the same as the connections on say an NG?
Reason why I chose that one, rather then the 2009 [Duemilanove] design which is what I also bought from the same vendor, is because the NG is mentioned on the pages for connecting the Mini to the computer system which the chap who wrote that page had on hand. http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Learning/ArduinoMini
