CompuLab Utilite2 Is a Tiny ARM Desktop PC Running Ubuntu

Omgubuntu - Mon, 09/03/2015 - 18:58

CompuLab, best known in Linux circles for being the manufacturer of the popular MintBox PCs, has launched the Utilite2 — a super small ARM PC running Ubuntu or Android.

Housed inside a tiny 3.4-inch by 2.3-inch aluminium casing is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, a quad-core CPU running at 1.7GHz, 2GB RAM and 4GB eMMC storage.

The base model of the Utilite2 costs $192. An additional model is also available for $229 that bumps the internal storage to 32GB.

This thing is tiny. Seriously tiny.

All models of the Utilite2 come with HDMI out, Gigabit Ethernet, built-in dual-antenna Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

Buyers also have access to audio in/out jack, micro USB/OTG and four USB 2.0 ports for connecting mice, keyboards an other compatible peripherals.

The Utilite2 is capable of powering a display with a max resolution of 1920×1080.

Choice of Ubuntu 12.04.3 for ARM

Compulab also saves buyers the hard work of finding a compatible Ubuntu for ARM build by offering its own version based on Ubuntu 12.04.3. An Android 4.3 image preloaded with Google Play is also available.

While not intending to be a mainstream device (CompuLab largely targets industrial use cases) the Utilite2 is sure to find some fans among the Linux on ARM enthusiast crowd.

The smaller, cheaper and more powerful $89 Intel Compute Stick may be better suited to anyone looking for a low-cost, low-power way to run more recent versions of Ubuntu and as much of the Linux software catalog as possible.

If you’re interested in buying head on over to the official product page for more details, including shipping dates and lead times.
