No official pricing was announced, but connection.com has both models listed, albeit out of stock, for $275.58 for the Celeron N4500 model (CUBI N JSL-006US), and $316.88 for CUBI N JSL-005US with a Pentium Silver N6000 processor. It’s not the first Jasper Mini mini PC we cover, but that’s one of the first with pricing, as there was no such information for the competing GIGABYTE GB-BMCE-4500C and Intel Atlas Canyon NUC mini PCs.
