The GMK NucBox mini PC that I reviewed this summer is now available for purchase from GMK or Amazon, no crowdfunding campaign required.

The unit I tested in August was a pre-release model and offered decent performance for a Windows PC in a 2.4″ x 2.4 ” x 1.7″ case. But I wasn’t able to get it to run Linux. Now that the NucBox is commercially available, GMK is sending me another unit to test, and I’ll update my review if I have better luck with Linux this time around.

In other recent tech news, we have updates on the One Netbook OneGx Pro and GPD Win 3 handheld gaming PCs, new features coming to Android and new features now available for Raspberry Pi OS.

Here’s a roundup of recent news from around the web.

  1. I hope the OneGX Pro LTE come in that black color too (minus the cartoon on the lid). Hopefully, it shows up for Amazon Prim shipping by Spring time.

  2. I snagged a GMK NUC box on Kickstarter. Generally, I am very happy and I see no evidence of the thermal throttling you reported on. One thing that kind of drives me crazy however is the way GMK uses a USB-C connector for power but seemingly implements their own proprietary 12 V DC pinout rather than just using a barrel connector or implementing USB-C power delivery compliant to the spec. I worry that someone in my household will plug the GMK power brick into one of the many USB-C PD devices lying around and do some real damage.
