MintBox 2 review – not as fresh, still as minty

The MintBox 2 is based off of the incredible Intense PC, a product released earlier this year that we really liked in our review. Specifically, it’s based on the mid-range of the Intense PC, running an i5 processor but with the RAM cut in half down to 4 GB. That still gives it plenty of raw power though, while still allowing it to idle at an astonishing 10 W. The actual case itself still has all the hallmark Intense PC features – the exact same port layout is featured on the front and back, and the only noticeable difference is that the interchangeable front ports include Linux Mint branding instead of the Intense PC logo.
