Linutop 3 Mini PC Runs Linux

The changes with this Linutop third version is significant. Goodbye to first AMD Geode chips that incorporated the first two models of the name. The mini PC is powered by a heart VIA C7 1 GHz. There is then a memory doubled from 512 MB to 1 GB. Same price for internal memory storage flash based, which is now 2 GB.

For its part the video circuit no longer offers only a single VGA output, but also a dual DVI / VGA. Evolution also in the wired network portion which is not only stamped Fast Ethernet (up to 100 Mbit / s), but displays a compatibility Gigabit Ethernet (up to 1 Gbit / s).

In terms of connectivity, we noticed a number of USB 2.0 ports from four to six, which allows you to connect a larger number of devices and the emergence of a COM port for a possible industrial use. Also finally adding a second microphone jack to the rear in addition to the front.

Proposed in a single tone black lacquered and enjoying a fanless design, no fan therefore, the device displays under 2 kilos on the scales and consumption of 20 watts in operation.
