Linux Mint Mini-PC Coming Soon

It appears that Ubuntu is not the only distro that is going to be preinstalled onto laptops. Linux Mint will now be preinstalled onto PCs as well, due to a partnership they have with CompuLab.

When these PCs sell, the Linux Mint team will get a small percentage of the pie, which is already sorta expected.

Mini Mint PCs

 Two  versions of the ‘MintBox’ will be made available, both based on AMD’s G-series chipset and using the latest release of the Linux Mint OS with MATE as its desktop environment.

 Below is the devices specs:
  • AMD CPU up to 1.65GHz dual core
  • Dual-head Radeon HD graphics
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 250GB HDD
  • 4x USB ports
  • Dual-head DisplayPort
  • HDMI
  • 2 eSATA ports
  • Ethernet
  • Wi-Fi
  • Ruggedized metal case
This PC is not out yet, so I cannot give an accurate price for it.
