Linutop feeds mini-PC fans tiny Tux box

Remote control for virtualized desktops

French firm Linutop has launched its latest micro desktop: the model 4.

An evolution of the its predecessor rather than a completely new machine, the 4, like the 3, has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of memory and 2GB of Flash storage for Linutop's own custom version of Ubuntu.

Linutop sees the 201 x 182 x 30mm, 936g gadget used as a thin client, but since the 4 has five USB 2.0 ports, dangling extra storage off the back isn't out of the question.

TV-fixable micro media PC anyone?

The 4 has VGA and DVI output, and Gigabit Ethernet for network connectivity. It uses Intel's integrated GMA 950 graphics, so gaming's out, but it should do HD playback.

The box consumes no more than 14W of power, 2W less than the 3. It can be yours for €400 (£349). Full details at the Linutop site. ®
