MINIX are stepping up their Mini PC game, announcing new MINIX Z-series Mini PCs featuring Intel’s Braswell SoCs.
Following on from the excellent MINIX Z64, The new mini PCs will come in two versions. One will be powered by the Celeron N3150 (Quad core, 2.08 GHz) processor whilst those willing to splash a bit more cash can get one with a higher performance Pentium N3700 (Quad core, 2.40 GHz) processor.
Both will feature all-metal cases and an entirely fanless design for completely silent operation.
There are still a few specs to be confirmed, although a MINIX rep stated that the two models will feature 4GB/8GB DDR3L 1600MHz RAM. There’s a pretty comprehensive set of ports on board, with HDMI, DisplayPort, S/PDIF, 3.5mm Audio, and three USB 3.0 connectors all making an appearance. There’s also two removable Wifi antennas which is a nice touch.
MINIX have said that full specifications will be unveiled at the IFA Exhibition in Berlin next week.
MINIX haven’t announced any pricing or availability information at this stage. However, given other devices in the market and MINIX’s premium pricetag, expect prices to be north of $200.
