Kubuntu Focus NX Mini Linux PC Unveiled With New Features
The Kubuntu Focus team has unveiled the new Kubuntu Focus NX Mini Linux PC, which will expand the Linux hardware offering to more users.
Kubuntu Focus is primarily concerned with the production of Linux PCs.
The unveiled Kubuntu Focus NX has many juicy features, including the fact that it is powered by Intel CPUs of the 11th generation, including the Intel Core i5-1135G7 or Intel Core i7-1165G7 with 4 cores and 8 threads. It has integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics and supports up to four 4K displays.
The price of the product starts at $695 for the base configuration with Intel Core i5-1135G7 processors, 8GB RAM and 250 GB SSD storage.
The Kubuntu Focus NX mini PC features the latest pre-installed Kubuntu 22.04 LTS (jammy jellyfish) operating system which is the latest. The operating system is supported for three years until 2025 and features the long-term supported KDE Plasma 5.24 LTS desktop environment. This desktop operating system can be upgraded to KDE Plasma 5.25 and higher.
Further piquant features are the possibility to customize the PC with up to 64 GB 3200 Mhz dual channel RAM as well as up to 6 TB (2 TB NVMe and 4 TB SSD) storage with optional full disk encryption.
The mini PC has two Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C ports with DisplayPort 1.4, one HDMI 2.0b port, one Mini DisplayPort 1.4 port, three USB-A 3.2 Gen2 ports, one Gigabit LAN RJ45 port, one SDXC card reader and one 2-in-1 audio jack.
“The NX is perfect for developers, creators, and engineers that want or need compatibility with the OS that powers the internet and billion of other devices. We feel its tiny footprint, high performance and the Kubuntu 22.04 LTS OS makes it a great choice for development workstations, office servers and media centers. Thanks to the great part selection, one can easily add an eGPU to run large ML pipelines or turbo-charge rendering performance when needed,” explained Michael Mikowski, General Manager.
