Default Linux Mint and Compulab Take on Chromebox with FitPC3

The people behind the slick and popular Debian-derivative Linux Mint, and Compulab released sketches of their upcoming nettop, the FitPC3. The two have been working on the project since late 2011. FitPC3 is a desktop that's powerful enough for internet, email, and basic computing. Unlike the Google-Samsung Chromebox, which runs Intel Atom and Chrome OS, the FitPC3 runs AMD G-Series T40N and T56N APUs and a highly-optimized variant of Linux Mint 12, featuring MATE 1.2 and XBMC.

Illustrated below, are two models on the drawing boards at Compulab, the first one features on value, basic, LP variants, while the other, on the Pro variant. Connectivity is aplenty, with six USB 2.0, two USB 3.0, and two eSATA ports; HDMI and DisplayPort display outputs; stereo audio; gigabit Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n, and Bluetooth 3.0 handling connectivity.
