The MintBox, released last year, was a powerful little machine running Linux Mint 13. Made by CompuLab, the people behind fit-PC and Intense PC, the MintBox was apparently a success and this has resulted in not only a new version coming soon, but some changes to the way the box is sold to benefit consumers.
The MintBox 2 itself has received a bit of an upgrade, going from the AMD chips of the last version to an Intel i5. Clement Lefebvre explains on his blog that this keeps the price to a similar level as the original MintBox, while also increasing the performance four fold.
Ordering the MintBox will now be easier, with no more customs charges for purchasing the device thanks to the ability to buy it from Amazon.de. There’s no word as to when the new MintBox is out, but we’ll let you know when it is.
