Those Endless Guys are Doing IT Again

Remember when I showed you those yummy new iMac-ish things by Endless Computers? Now they just came up with something even nicer, quite creative with a touch of retro style even. Look at the Endless Mission Mini computer:

Mmmmm, that’s yummy, right? And, no,  that’s no plastic but real wood!

And the more expensive model is only slightly better equipped:

  • HDMI & VGA
  • 1x USB 3.0

And if you start to groan now because you think they do look almost kinda exactly like Intel NUCs you may be correct as well. Listen, I dunno about the pricing structure but I guess an original Intel NUC is more expensive, even as a barebone. While with the Endless you’ll receive a weak but full featured PC, even including a nifty selfmade Linux distro, the Endless OS. Preinstalled so even the most housewifey unadventurous of you dear readers (Hai Luna ^.^) can start Linuxing right away.

Ok, now the inevitable questions:

Would Orca recommend the purchase of such mini desktop computers? – It depends. Do you have a spare set of keyboard, mouse and screen? Do you need an underpowered desktop for light office work? Then yes. And it will doubtlessly look chic as your kitchen computer with the bestest cooking blogs showing your fave recipes on it.

Would Orca buy one herself?No. It’s not that I don’t like them. I find them funny and with the wooden casing very desirable. But I’m not rich and prefer to spend my money on hardware that I can really use, or that is like really really cheap. Also I know how to install every sort of Linux onto any sort of PC so I have a much wider range to choose from. For everybody wanting to try Linux without any hassle I’d recommend the shitty laptops from above link as well.
