Unlike other Netbooks, Laptops, and Computers, HP has put a combo port for speakers/microphone on their Mini 110s. I have not been able to find a
combo 3.5mm jack to access these features. I use these netbooks for world travels, and don't want the airport in on my Skype conversations - making a
mic and ear phone required equipment. A work-around, is a USB mic/headset, but these are bulky. Anyone have a solution?

I have also had trouble with the Multi-Jack. I recently bought Dragon Naturally Speaking. It came with a headset with 2 jacks, one spr an one mic. Can'figure out how to connect.HP Info that came with the Mini is sparse and disappointing. Dragon isn't much better.
Can anyone help with a solution?

I use my Ipod earbuds that have a mic on them, they work perfect. The only problem is you can't use the remote to pause or play or for volume. Otherwise they work perfectly fine. Alternativly you can buy the in ear earphones with mic for ipods made by iLuv, they work as well.

I'm just waiting for my 110c Mini to arrive but I've been looking at the same issue ...
Found this page with connection details for the single 4-pole 3.5mm jack plug on this very site for anyone that feels capable of making their own adapter Warning: may invalidate warranty if damage ensues as a result of using non-approved equipment of course.
There are a few places that sell adapters that look like they might be right for splitting the combo jack socket to seperate headphone/speaker and microphone sockets like this one -> Click Me ... definitely worth checking that the wiring will reproduce the above connection details before risking blowing any delicate electronics inside the machine though
Will post here again if any new information comes my way,
