We were excited to see so much interest from the community in our Librem Mini pre-order campaign and we hit our initial goals within only three weeks. Since then we’ve been testing hardware and porting coreboot over and now we are ready to start shipping Librem Mini pre-orders to customers.
As you may know the Librem Mini is revolutionary in that it supports Purism’s PureBoot out-of-the-box in addition to our default coreboot firmware and can work with the Librem Key for ultimate security. It is the ideal home server or secure workstation, and is fully backed by the support of Purism.
If you ordered a Librem Mini, you will receive an email confirming your order status and shipping information. As with any newly brought to market product, the Librem Mini running PureOS will have software updates to apply as we continue to refine the firmware. One forthcoming software update that we want to bring to your attention concerns the fan speed control, as currently the CPU is passively cooled and may throttle down under heavy load. Full active cooling will be coming in a firmware update so we highly recommend following our published announcements. If you are uncomfortable with applying a firmware update using our coreboot firmware update tool, you also have the option for Purism to hold the order until we release that software update. If you desire that, let us know when we contact you to confirm shipping information, otherwise you will be enjoying your Librem Mini soon!
If you were waiting until the shipping announcement to place your order, now’s the time! Click here to order your Librem Mini, to be shipped within approximately 10 business days.
