CompuLab and the developers of Linux Mint have been partnering to offer a series of small desktop computers with Linux Mint software (and a minty green color) for a few years. One of the most recent is the nearly 2-year-old MintBox Mini. But now there’s a new model with a faster processor, more memory and storage, and other improvements.
It’s called the Mintbox Mini Pro, and CompuLab will be selling the new computer soon for $395.
The computer is the same size as its predecessor, measuring 4.3″ x 3.3″ x 0.9″ and weighing about 9 ounces. The system has fanless design and features an all-metal case made of aluminum and zinc.
The MintBox Mini Pro powered by a 4.5 watt, 64-bit AMD A10-Micro6700T system-on-a-chip with Radeon R6 graphics and features 8GB of DDR3L-1333 RAM and 120GB of mSATA solid state storage.
It has dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, a 3.5mm audio jack, S/PDIF audio, and a mic input, two USB 3.0 ports and four USB 2.0 ports, a microSD card slot, a serial port, and a micro SIM card slot.
The computer ships with Linux Mint 18 pre-installed, but it’s also compatible with Windows 7 and later.
