Does the Mini 1012 have a fan? Or is it fanless like previous versions?

I don't have one to officially confirm, but no. It is fanless like previous versions, based on the documentation I have read.

I can confirm that it is fanless.
In normal use there is almost no heat production, but it becomes noticable but still acceptable when running demanding tasks (like benchmarks or video playback).

The only thing you hear is a very silent spin of the harddrive.
