Linux Mint Unveils Pocket-Sized 'MintBox Mini' PC - OMG! Ubuntu!:

The MintBox Mini is five times smaller than the original MintBox and is barely an inch tall. Like previous editions, the new model is fanless, with the case design working as a passive cooling system.
If there’s a criticism to be levelled at the device it’s the utilitarian design. Previous MintBox models had a very distinctive look. The mini looks like an ADSL router made out of aluminium (aluminum for US readers).
Not that appearance matters too much in a device this tiny.

MintBox Mini Specs

The success of Chromeboxes has proven that big things really can come in very small packages. The MintBox Mini is no exception, offering twice the performance of the MintBox 2 in a device able to slip into a pocket.
Inside it touts:
  • AMD A4 6400T CPU (64-bit, quad-core, 1GHz)
  • Radeon R3 GPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB 
Ports and extensibility are well catered for. The device offers three USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, a pair ofHDMI out sockets for dual-monitor setups, headphone/mic jack and a MicroSD card reader for expanding storage.
Connectivity includes integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and ethernet. There’s no mention of Bluetooth.

MintBox Mini Price

CompuLab will sell the MintBox Mini for $295 shipped in the US and €295 shipped in Europe. A percentage of the overall sale cost goes to Linux Mint and to cover the five year warranty provided.
For more details head over to the Linux Mint announcement or check out the device on the CompuLab website.
