Meet the mintBox: A New Mini-PC with Linux Mint Preinstalled

Linux fans worried about Windows 8's 'secure boot' technology now have yet another alternative.

Included in the easily hackable mintBox are eight USB ports along with Ethernet, Wi-fi, and Bluetooth, and an HDMI port and DVI adapter. So, too, of course, is Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon.

Two Models Available

Both basic and professional models of the mintBox are available. Priced at $476, the basic model features a 1.0 GHz dual core APU G-T40N and 4GB of RAM; the $549 professional model offers a 1.65 GHz dual core APU G-T56N and 8GB of RAM.

Both can now be ordered directly from CompuLab; 10% of each sale goes to the Linux Mint project.
