Small but Powerful. That’s How I will describe Linutop.

After seeing just the pictures itself from the website, I can’t help myself but to be amazed on how compact this Linux PC is. Imagine, it’s about the size of an average router or ADSL modem and don’t you even think that it doesn’t have computing power coz, Linutop is designed to be a miniaturized ready-to-use desktop PC, so it’s completely different from picotux. Let’s take a quick look on what Linutop Offers.

Linutop is

  • a ready to use linux PC that runs Xubuntu as it’s Operating System.
  • Small and Silent. It can be placed or attached at the back of an LCD monitor. It doesn’t have any moving parts too.
  • is an energy saver. It only consumes 8W.
  • Robust and Secure. With Linux running on your PC, you can be assured that security is at hand.

What about the Computer Specifications?

Linutop has 2 versions. Linutop 1 and Linutop 2. Linutop 1 is mainly for digital signage and industrial environments and Linutop 2 is for desktop computing.
