AMD Ryzen DeskMini UM700 announced with Manjaro Linux | GamingOnLinux

The Manjaro Linux folks have teamed up with Minisforum to bring a very small but quite mighty system with the DeskMini UM700 × Manjaro Linux. Exciting? Well, it's basically rebrand of the existing EliteMini UM700 only it has Manjaro Linux instead of Windows 10 - and the first 1,000 orders get a free copy of CrossOver Linux.

Interestingly enough, this is pretty much the same box that Valve showed a pictured of them using in their developer documentation when talking about sorting a system for developing for Steam Deck without a Dev-Kit.

  • MINISFORUM launches AMD Ryzen-powered mini desktop PC running Manjaro Linux

    When it comes to computers, there are two things that really get my motor running -- AMD processors and Linux-based operating systems.

It is very exciting to see yet another computer being offered with Linux rather than Windows.

    Called "DeskMini UM700," the mini Linux desktop PC is being offered in three configurations -- all powered by the very capable Ryzen 7 3750H APU -- with pricing starting at less than $500. In other words, the tiny computer isn't just capable, but affordable too.
