Fan header splitter for a couple of bucks means you can have both, for mini itx cases you want as much airflow as possible.

exhaust is more important. but see if you can get a system fan header that lets you plug them both in.

Dont settle for just one fan get 2. If you must have just one get an intake creating positive air pressure, reducing dust in the system and ensuring a large supply of fresh air into the system.
