Fanless Jasper Lake mini PCThe mini PC will ship with 75x75mm and 100x100m VESA mounting brackets, and according to FanlessTech, will be sold barebone in a few weeks for 159 Euros, meaning you’d need to add the memory, storage, and operating system to get a complete system. The company expects the mini PC to be used for IoT applications, as a desktop computer, a 4K HTPC, a digital signage, and/or  an entry-level system for education.

Liliputing also pointed out there are two other similar actively cooled models with GB-BMC-5105 and GB-BMPD-6005 equipped with respectively the 10W Intel Celeron N5105 and Pentium Silver N6005 processors, that were announced in a recent press release together with GIGABYTE GB-BMCE-4500C fanless mini PC.

I am happy with my passively cooled Gigabyte BRIX i3 8GB RAM, M.2 plus SATA SSD. Easily manages tropical temperatures.

i3 Generation? And what about the price? What I know is BRIX is pricier than intel NUC.

Does anyone know if a Linux distribution like Ubuntu works on the device?

Jasper Lake is known to work. Wrt this specific box simply do a web search for ‘GB-BMCE-4500C linux’ and you’ll end up for example here. If it’s listed on a company’s website specialised in Linux and *BSD then most probably everything works with Linux.

It works fine with Ubuntu 2020.04.3. Only small issue I had was finding the best driver for the built in WLAN (Realtek RTL 8812 CE). Ubuntu will find a working driver. But look here. They develop WLAN sticks for Linux-OS on a RTL 8812 basis and deliver an appropriate driver. Its much better than the one Ubuntu suggests and works perfect with the build in WLAN chip.
