Fans of bijou computers paired with open source firmware won’t pay over the odds the spec bump either. The Librem Mini v2 costs from $699 — the same price as the original version despite now having a much faster processor.
Processor aside the rest of the base specs for the Librem Mini v2 remain the same as v1, including 8GB RAM (expandable to 64GB); a 250GB M.2 SSD (expandable), and Intel UHD Graphics 620. Wi-fi isn’t included in the base model but customers have the option of adding a wireless card prior to check out for $29.99.
