The CuBox Pro Is A Tiny PC With 2GB Of Ram

cuboxpro-100019832-large

The CuBox Pro by SolidRun was announced in January, but we’re just now stumbling upon it. It’s a very small, 2 inch cube box that contains a fully functional PC with 2GB of RAM. It uses a microSD card for storage, and the $160 machine comes with a 4GB card with Ubuntu pre-installed. And while everyone is going crazy for the $35 Raspberry Pi (understandably so), we kind of dig this little guy’s form factor.

The fanless miniature computer is based on a Marvell Armada 510 SoC and includes an infrared receiver, gigabit Ethernet port, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port, and a micro-SD slot. The 800MHz dual issue ARM PJ4 processor uses the latest 32-bit ARMv7 architecture and instruction set, SolidRun says.

Capable of 1080p full HD output over HDMI, the device uses just 3 watts of power. It’s particularly suitable for use as a home media center, thin client, XBMC console, or even a simple, tiny desktop replacement machine, the company notes.

It’s not quite as cheap as the Pi, but the $160 price tag is still low enough and will look good sitting next to your TV.
