Librem Mini V2: A powerful mini-PC with a Comet Lake Core i7 processor and up to 64 GB of RAM
Not even a year has passed since Purism released the Librem Mini, but the company has now unveiled a second-generation model. Unsurprisingly, Purism has called its latest machine the Librem Mini V2, which also offers a hint of the breadth of upgrades that the mini-PC has been afforded.
According to the manufacturer, the Librem Mini V2 has been upgraded to a Core i7-10510U, a 15 W chip from Intel's Comet Lake-U family. While this is an upgrade from the Core i7-8565U that the company included in the first Librem Mini, the change will only yield a 6% performance improvement, based on our database.
Elsewhere, the Librem Mini V2 remains identical to its predecessor. The machine has two SO-DIMM slots for up to 64 GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, one M.2 slot for an NVMe or SATA III drive, along with a 2.5-inch drive bay for another SATA II drive. Additionally, Purism continues to equip its mini-PC with two video outputs, seven USB ports, an RJ45 connection and optional Bluetooth/Wi-Fi.
The Librem Mini V2 starts at US$699 with 8 GB of RAM, a 250 GB SATA SSD and a combination of coreboot + SeaBIOS. The machine can be configured up to US$3,193, though. The Librem Mini V2 is available to order now.
