What really sets the machine aside from other netbook rivals, such as Lenovo’s S9 and S10, is that FSC’s model boasts interchangeable covers. It comes with one dark red clip-on cover, but more can be bought separately, including a transparent one that lets you slip a picture inside.

FSC’s not willing to provide any further details about the Mini just yet, because it’s keeping all the juicy features a secret until IFA, which kicks off in Berlin later this month.

However, the firm has said that the machine will be available to purchase this autumn for around £300 (€450/$600).
