When you think of Linux mini PCs, you think of relatively low-powered systems because of the limited size. That’s not the same case with CL100. Even though, this mini Linux machine is compact in size but it is backed by high end features.
What is CL 100?
CL 100 is a mini fanless computer designed for industrial purposes. This minicomputer is capable of driving multiple independent HD displays, and it consumes less than 15 watts.
The computer can also be configured with an Intel Quad-Core N3160 or N3710 Braswell CPU. Plus, it comes along with the latest generation of Intel HD graphics. Plus, it offers you support for up to 16 GB of RAM.
Because of this much of hardware capability, CL 100 is an ideal choice for a wide range of embedded applications.
However, if you are planning to get this tiny machine, don’t expect to experience a great performance. But it will help you to handle basic everyday tasks with ease. You can run applications like word processing, spreadsheets, multi-tab web browsing, and other basic tasks without facing any lag.
Anyway, to help you understand in a better way, let me list down the specifications:

Cooling & Temperatures
As we are talking about a fanless computer over here and it might concern a lot of people about the temperature control. However, it comes with a technology called OnLogic Hardshell Fanless Technology.
The mini PC is powered by a proprietary heatsink design that pulls heat away from the motherboard and other sensitive components and transfers the heat to the chassis. As a result, it is capable of enabling cooling without the need for fans.
Available Operating Systems
The Logic Supply CL 100 also comes with a bunch of operating system options, and you can choose your favorite OS while ordering.
For example, you are getting operating systems like Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit, Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2019 LTCS Entry (Atom) 64 Bit, Ubuntu Desktop 16.04 LTS 64-bit, Windows 7 Embedded – 64-bit, Non Touchscreen-Enabled and many more.
However, you should know that CL 100 does not come with an OS pre-installed. So depending on your operating system, there will be an additional charge that you have to pay.
CL 100 Pricing
Full of features, isn’t it? Now, let’s talk pricing.
The base version of the CL 100 costs you $373.00. However, you should know that it will only come with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of mSata SSD and a power adapter. Also, there will be no operating system.
However, Logic Supply allows you to customize your build, and you can add wireless compatibility, extra RAM, increase the storage, and all for additional costs.
The thing that I like most about this configuration concept is that you can build your machine according to your needs. And only pay for the components based on your requirements. Plus, you will get free economy shipping.
