Linux Mint and CompuLab unveil new MintBox Mini Pro

CompuLab has announced its latest mini-PC loaded with the popular Linux distribution, Mint. The device, which will set you back $395, will come pre-installed with Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon (64-bit) but you can slap a copy of Windows 7, 8, or 10 if Linux isn’t for you.

The MintBox Mini Pro includes the following hardware:

  • 120GB SSD mSATA
  • 8GB RAM
  • A10-Micro 6700T Chipset, 64-bit quad core @ 1.2GHz (boost up to 2.2GHz)
  • AMD Radeon R6 GPU
  • Dual HDMI 1.4a up to 1920 x 1200 @ 60Hz
  • GbE LAN port (ethernet)
  • WLAN 802.11ac (2.4/5GHz dual band Intel 7260HMW)
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • 2x USB 3.0
  • 4x USB 2.0
  • Micro-SD slot (supports SD/SDHC cards), transfer rates up to 25MB/s
  • Micro SIM slot
  • Full-size mSATA socket (low profile)
  • Half/Full-size mini-PCIe socket (high profile)
  • Better passive cooling thanks to an all-metal black housing

You may be a bit taken aback by the inclusion of a micro-SIM slot on a desktop computer, with them not being all that common. Responding to one commenter in the blog’s thread, Clem Lefebvre stated that he needs to confirm with CompuLab as to whether the micro-SIM slot is compatible with Linux and whether it can be used to give 3G/4G connectivity. You can find the MintBox Mini Pro, as well as other MintBox versions, on CompuLab's FitPC website.
