Happy New Year everyone!
We’re starting 2015 with exciting news. Linux Mint and CompuLab will be announcing a brand new unit called “MintBox Mini” in Q2 2015.
With a volume of 0.22l and a thickness of 0.95″ the MintBox Mini is small enough to be pocketable. In terms of volume it’s 3 times smaller than the Intel NUC and 5 times smaller than the MintBox.
Thanks to its passively cooled fanless design and its internal SSD storage, it’s also completely silent.
The MintBox Mini features 802.11 b/g/n Wifi and Gigabit Ethernet network connectivity, 5 USB ports (3xUSB2.0 and 2xUSB3.0), jack input/output for headphones and microphones, a MicroSD reader and two HDMI sockets for dual monitors/TVs.
The MintBox Mini is powered by an AMD A4 6400T and a Radeon R3 GPU and equipped with 4GB RAM and 64GB SSD. In terms of performance, it is twice as powerful as the 2012 “MintBox Pro”.
CompuLab is planning to ship it at $295 with a percentage of the sales going towards Linux Mint and a 5 years warranty. The MintBox Mini will also be available via Amazon US and Amazon Europe (where it should ship at €295 custom/vat/delivery included).
