MNT Seeks Financial Backing for New Seven-Inch Linux Laptop

Mar 20, 2023

MNT Pocket Reform is a tiny laptop that is modular, upgradable, recyclable, reusable, and ships with Debian Linux.

If you're looking for a tiny laptop that's barely larger than your smartphone and runs Linux, MNT has just the device for you.

The MNT Pocket Reform is a full-fledged laptop in a tiny form factor that could serve as your new on-the-go hardware. Sure, it's tiny and the keyboard is small enough to be problematic for larger hands, but having a Linux laptop in your pocket (granted a larger pocket) has plenty of upsides.

The MNT Pocket Reform includes an ARM Cortex-A53 CPU at 1.8 GHz, 8 GB of DDR4 RAM, 128 GB eMMC flash memory, an NVMe SSD slot (for up to 2 TB), full disk encryption (via LUKS), Vivante GC7000UL GPU, H.264/H.265 video decoder, Cortext-M7 Realtime core, HiFi4 Audio DSP, a mechanical keyboard with RGB backlighting, a micro-optical trackball, a 7" full HD+ (1920 x 1200 px) display, Wi-Fi 802.11c, Bluetooth 5.0, MicroSD card slot, and an optional M.2 key B WWAN slot for 4G/5G/LTE.

You'll also find 2 USB 3.0 Type-C ports (with one delivering power), a Micro HDMI port, an ix industrial 1GbE ethernet port (with optional RJ45 adapter). The battery consists of 2 Li-Ion cells for a total of 8000 mAh and an approximate run time of 4 hours.

At the moment, the MNT Pocket Reform is participating in Crowd Supply, so you can back the device for $899.00 for a black device or $969.00 for a purple one.
