Any general consensus or reccomendations on this ----- I've already got speakers on the audio port ---- I'm thinking something that plugs into the firewire port

Whats the best way / most economical

I have never used it so I do not know how good it is, but it is probably one of the more economical solutions. Another (less economical) solution would be a MOTU 828. You could pick up a used one for a hundred and change, a used Mark II for a little more.

Yeah I saw this at the apple store - but I already have my speakers into the 1/4 audio adapter in back of the mini ....... that means I need to unplug the speakers when I want the geetar plugged in ?????

The iMic plugs into your mini's USB port.

That 1/4 jack is an audio OUT, if you want to use audio IN, the iMic will do the trick. It plugs into a USB port. You will have to get the adapter for your guitar cable, but it will work just fine.
