Linux Blocked From Booting on Apple’s New MacBook Air

Apple recently announced their new MacBook Air with Retina display, which is a nice upgrade from older versions. Apparently it is impossible to boot with a Linux distribution on the new MacBook Air.

Compulab MintBox 2 Unveiled

The CompuLab and Linux Mint won’t dishearten on the front because they have just unveiled the MintBox 2 which is a big time improvement to their open source mini PC.

We personally presume that Compulab might be using mobile dual-core variants, which is considered to be four times as fast as an E-series APU.
