Back in March, Mike Schropp unveiled his Mini LEGO Computer. It went viral and is now a commercial success, but many people asked him for a smaller and more affordable LEGO PC. So Mike came up with the Micro LEGO Computer, a modified Intel NUC PC.

The Micro LEGO Computer measures 4” x 5” x 5”, 75% smaller than the Mini LEGO Computer. It has a Core i3, i5 or i7 CPU, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 1TB SSD storage and has 802.11ac and Bluetooth. It also has an Ethernet port, four USB 3.0 ports, a mini-HDMI port and a mini-DisplayPort.  Mike also added a Noctua fan to keep the PC’s components cool.

What makes the Micro LEGO Computer extra special is that it incorporates LEGO’s stacking and modularity. It has optional external hard drive and a memory card reader and USB hub modules with LEGO enclosures. He designed their cases such that you could stack the Micro LEGO Computer and both modules into one unit. Each module connects to the Micro LEGO via a USB 3.0 port.

Finally, like its predecessor you can customize the Micro LEGO Computer’s top cover; Mike offers the same three top cover variants that are available for the Mini LEGO Computer. He can also add minifigs and other decorative details to your order. The Micro LEGO Computer’s case itself is also available in different LEGO colors. Head to Mike’s website to order; prices start at $599 (USD).
