Last year the Linux Mint project in association with CompuLab introduced the mintBox, a tiny Linux Mint computer about the size of a cable modem. “It’s tiny, it’s silent, it’s extremely versatile,” so said Clement Lefebvre, founder of Mint. Well, today, Lefebvre previewed the next generation of MintBox.
In June 2012 the original mintBoxshipped with 1.0 GHz dual core CPU, 4 GB RAM, and a 250 GB hard drive for $476. A “Pro” version upped the CPU to 1.65 GHz and the RAM to 8 GB for another $73. Linux Mint 13 was the operating system then, featuring the Cinnamon desktop.
