The Purism Librem Mini is a highly configurable mini PC from the makers of the Librem 5 smartphone and Librem 15 desktop replacement laptop. The new mini PC has been designed with privacy and security in mind, and it has a very compact build at 5.0-in x 5.0-in x 1.5-in (12.8 cm x 12.8 cm x 3.8 cm) and weighs just 2.2 lbs (1 kg).

The Librem Mini costs US$599 without an SSD or memory, while the basic variant of the mini PC with just 8 GB RAM and a 250 GB SATA SSD costs US$699. All configurations feature the quad-core Intel Core i7-8565U that has been chosen for its power efficiency (15 W TDP) and high performance range and clocks (1800 MHz – 4600 MHz).

A fully specced-out Purism Librem Mini with 64 GB RAM, 2 TB NVMe SSD, and wireless module (Atheros ATH9k) will set you back US$2,106. However, the final price can reach almost US$3,500 if you start upgrading the software and firmware and throw in some handy peripherals like a display and additional storage device.

Connectivity is extensive on the Librem Mini: 4x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0, 1x USB Type-C 3.1, 1x HDMI 2.0 [email protected], 1x DisplayPort 1.2 [email protected], 1x RJ45, and a 3.5 mm combo audio jack. Purism has specified a campaign goal before deliveries begin, which is set at US$50,000. Shipping of the Purism Librem Mini is expected to start around four weeks after the goal is met.
