From looking at the specs, it appears that the new Mac Mini's do NOT support the mini display port adaptor  dongle. Their video is either through the Thunderbolt port or the HDMI port. The mini should come with a HDMI to DVI adapter. Thunderbolt port, I think, only works with TB monitors, and there is perhaps one or two that support that. I looked in the on-line Apple store and didn't see any HDMI to VGA adapter, but I suppose some third party might make that.
i have one like the one you posted, for your concern, this one will work for sure with Thunderbolt port. Try it out and tell me the outcome.

good luck
