The Beelink GT-R is a small desktop computer with a 35-watt AMD Ryzen 5 3350H processor, Radeon Vega 8 graphics, support for WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, a built-in fingerprint sensor, and a decent selection of ports.
But soon you may able to buy one with Manjaro Linux pre-installed instead.
This new addition to the Manjaro PC lineup is a computer that measures about 6.6″ x 4.7″ x 1.5″ and which supports up to 32GB of RAM and up to two SSDs (there’s an m.2 2280 slot that supports NVMe storage, and another that supports SATA III storage.
The computer also features:
- 2 x HDMI ports
- 1 x DisplayPort
- 1 x USB Type-C port
- 6 x USB 3.0 Type-A ports
- 2 x Gigabit Ethernet ports
- 1 x Headset jack
- 2 x built-in mics
There’s a fingerprint sensor on top of the case for secure logins, and dual fans plus three heat conduction pipes inside the case to keep AMD’s 35-watt processor cool.
If you’re looking for something a little smaller with a newer Ryzen 4000 series processor, Manjaro also offers a branded version of the Asus PN50 mini PC with a 15 watt Ryzen 3 4300U processor. But with a starting price of €655 (~$770), that option’s not exactly cheap.
Pricing and availability for the Beelink GT-R mini PC with Manjaro haven’t been announced yet, but I suspect one benefit of going with a smaller PC maker like Beelink is the ability to offer a lower starting price.
