Linux PC builder System76 plans to launch a tiny desktop PC with an Intel Broadwell processor and Ubuntu Linux software.
Update: The System76 Meerkat is now available for $499 and up.
The little computer is based on Intel’s NUC mini-desktop design and measures about 4 inches by 4 inches square.
System76 says the Meerkat will support up to 16GB of RAM and up to 2TB of storage. It has an M.2 slot for solid state storage and a 2.5 inch drive bay for a hard drive or SSD.
The company plans to offer two different CPU options: an Intel Core i3-5010U (with Intel HD 550 graphics) or a Core i5-5250U processor (with Intel HD 6000).
Other features include HDMI and DisplayPort for connecting up to two displays, Gigabit Ethernet, four USB ports, and a headset jack.
Final pricing hasn’t been determined yet, but the company says the System76 Meerkat will probably sell for about $500 and up when it launches later this month.
