Pantera Pico PC ultra-compact mini PC ships with Windows 10 or Ubuntu (Crowdfunding)

The Pantera Pico PC is an ultra-compact Gemini Lake Refresh mini computer similar to the Chuwi Larkbox Pro, that was supposed to launch in December 2020 through an Indiegogo campaign.

Let’s say there have been delays, and the company – XDO Tech – has only just launched the Pico PC on Kickstarter for $149 and up.

  • System Memory – Dual-channel 4GB or 8GB LPDDR4

  • USB – 3x USB3.0, 1x USB2.0
  • Misc – Power button, power LED, reset hole, fan, and heatsink, TPM 2.0 (Windows 11 ready)
  • Power Supply – 12V USB-C power port (That’s not a standard USB-C PD port, and that’s the same 12V only power port as for competing models).
  • Dimensions – Approx 6.9 x 6.9 x 5.3 cm

Pantera Pico PC

The mini PC ships with Windows 10 Home or Pro, or Ubuntu 20.04 Linux as selected by backers. XDO Tech actually highlights the latter as one of the main differences compared to the competition, along with a greater number of USB ports, a choice of colors, LED decoration lights, and more including support forums that other companies may not offer.

The $149 reward is for the model with 4GB RAM and 64 GB “ROM”,  and the highest specs variant with 8GB RAM and a 1 TB SSD goes for about $250.  Shipping adds about $12.9 to most of the world, and XDO Tech plans to start shipping the Pantera Pico PC in November 2021.

Effectively the same price as 3 Raspberry Pi 4 four GB model.

But faster and with native Windows GPU support, not forgetting built in 64GB ROM, case, fan, heatsink, power supply also led light.
