SolidRun CuBox Review – A Tiny PC

Filed under
Linux
Hardware

The CuBox, announced in December 2011, has been slow in coming to the UK, but is finally available through compact computing specialist New IT. Has it been worth the wait?

The first thing that strikes you about the CuBox is its size: measuring just 55mm on a side and 42mm tall, it’s one of the smallest fully featured microcomputers around. Its compact footprint comes courtesy of a split design, which moves some components onto a mezzanine board above the main PCB. Unlike the Raspberry Pi, OLinuXino and similar, it’s also provided in a specially designed casing which hides the components and a large aluminium heatsink that’s bonded to the processor.
