MimoPlug bundle with MimoMonitor makes the smallest Linux computer around

Jun 14, 2011

We have talked about the cool gear that MimoMonitors offers several times in the past. The company has a line of cool USB monitors that are small and compact and get the power and connectivity they need to operate from a single USB port. The company has a cool new bundle that wraps any one of those monitors up in a package with a MimoPlug Linux computer. The MimoPlug is one of the tiny computers that hangs from your wall outlet and takes up about the same amount of space as an AC adapter.

The tiny MimoPlug measures in at a scant 4.33" L x 2.74" W x 1.9" H and when paired with one of the several MimoMonitors available makes for one of the smallest computer systems around. The system is aimed at the cloud-computing environment. The tiny little machine is good for local computing as well and can be operated 24/7 for retail kiosks, hotel guest services, network monitoring, employment applications, and all sorts of other needs.

Inside the computer portion of the system is a 1.2GHz CPU with 4GB, 8GB, or 16GB of flash memory. It has 512MB of DDR2 RAM, Gigabit Ethernet, and a single USB 2.0 port. That port is where the monitor attaches. The machine can connect to the web and more. All of the screens that are bundled with the little computer are touch capable. Prices start at $399.98.
