  • Endless is bringing its cheap, user-friendly Linux PCs to the US

    Now Endless is making a push for the US market with the new (and less quirky) Mission Mini and Mission One. They're small boxes with a bit of a wood motif going on to differentiate them from a Mac Mini or any other tiny PC. The $129 Mini has a quad core 1.5GHz ARM processor, 2GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. The $249 One has a 2.16GHz Celeron processor and a 500GB hard drive.

    If you add keyboard, mouse, and a screen to the price, neither computer is a better deal thanan equivalent Chromebook, but the extra apps (like an open source Office clone, an open-source Minecraft clone, etc.) and the bundled content (including thousands of offline Wikipedia articles, and some upcoming coding tutorials) might make the difference.


    The dream of a Linux computer for normal humans is relatively dead. Sure, Google put Linux in billions of hands and homes with Android and Chrome OS, but neither OS is very much like the desktop Linux flavors well-meaning open-source developers have been crafting for decades.

    A company called Endless has marked a third route, a stripped-down Linux operating system without many of the complications and difficulties (and features) of a typical Linux distro, but more apps and offline capabilities than Chrome OS. The OS is available for free download, but it also ships on the quirky Endless Mini and Endless One desktops Endless sells.

    • Linux PC builder System76 plans to design, manufacture its own hardware
      trebor
      System76 is one of only a handful of PC vendors that exclusively sells computers with Linux-based software. Up until now, thatís meant the company has chosen hardware that it could guarantee would work well with custom firmware and the Ubuntu Linux operating system.

      But unlike larger PC companies (think Acer, Apple, Asus, Dell, Lenovo, and HP), System76 hasnít designed or manufactured its own hardware. Instead it used OEM/ODM companies to do those things, instead focusing on the software.

    • Core-based fanless GIGABYTE BRIX
      trebor
      GIGABYTE finally launches a Kaby Lake fanless BRIX. Powered by the highly capable i3-7100U, the GB-EKi3A-7100 will offer substantial performance gains over its Apollo Lake siblings (although losing the microSD card reader, second HDMI, and second Ethernet port).







      It's also slightly larger at 180 x 117 x 36 mm (0.76 liter) and features longer cooling fins for improved thermals (the entire case acts as a heat sink). The barebone is part of...

      We know that Intel will bring to market the first NUC Intel Celeron J3455 (Apollo Lake) by the summer, but the Santa Clara company is not the only one to have spotted these processors for its Mini PC: There are quite a few 'the producers concerned to refresh its offer and, after seeing the plans of apples , we moved on to BBEN which already has some prototype ready for marketing.
