The unusual concept of a modular mini-PC Khadas Mind has ceased to be a concept. The company has launched on Kickstarter and is ready to begin shipping some of the modules this year.

Not much has changed since the concept was announced in July. Khadas Mind is still a very compact mini-PC that can be greatly expanded through modules. The mini-PC itself has dimensions of 146 × 105 × 20 mm with a mass of 450 g. Inside, you can choose either Core i5-1340P or Core i7-1360P, 16–32 GB of RAM, an SSD with a capacity of 512 GB, and there is also a slot for a second storage, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, USB 3.2 Gen2 (x2), HDMI 2.0, RJ45, USB-C (x2) and SD card slot. To connect those same modules, a proprietary Mind Link connector is used. It also has its own 5.55 Wh battery, which is needed for hot-swap modules.

As part of a crowdfunding campaign for a PC, they ask for 600 or 800 dollars, depending on the modification. Retail prices will be $800 and $1,100 respectively. 

The base module is the Mind Dock, which expands the set of ports and adds a convenient physical volume control.  

Mind Graphics is an external graphics card. This is the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB. The unit has its own set of ports and speakers. For a mini PC with a docking station, they are now asking for $ 930, and for a kit with a video card, you will have to pay at least $ 1,500.  

The equipment also includes the Mind xPlay module, which is a screen with a keyboard and a stand. Connecting to a mini PC turns the whole thing into a laptop. True, for some reason, there are no details about this module, and it is missing from the roadmap. It is only in the plans for now, like the Mind Studio Display monitor.
