Compulab introduces ARM-based Ubuntu-PC for $99

We live in exciting times when it comes to PC’s. It seems that each day we see new mutations of the classic PC. We have Chromebooks, small USB-sticks with Android and now soon also a ARM-based mini-PC running Ubuntu.


The Utilite from Compulab is a small ARM-based PC which will be running Ubuntu (although they also mention Android, it might be able to dualboot). It will be available with single, dual and quad-core-CPU and the price starts at just $99. 

This is of course not a gaming-PC, instead it should work well as a simple home-PC for surfing the web and doing simpler stuff as well as most probably a nice media-PC. 

The Utilite will come with 4 GB DDR3-1066 memory and also supports mSATA SSD up to 512 GB and also Micro-SD SDXC up to 128GB. It uses a Freescale i.MX6 single / dual / quad core Cortex-A9 MPCore which is clocked up to 1.2 GHz.
