The $50 ARM computer
Home away from home
Home away from home


See User information
This cute little board has just about everything you could want on a real computer:
http://cubieboard.org/

1GHz processor, 3D acceleration, up to 1GB of RAM, HDMI output (and so presumably DVI via adaptor), ethernet, *SATA*, MicroSD card, 4GB of flash, USB.

Just a shame it runs Android rather than our favourite OS...

Another nice little Andriod device

Makes you wonder if the money spend on building the X1000 HW and software support couldn't have been spent (and recouped) better on an AmigaOS4 port to readily available hardware everyone can afford.

At this point i don't see it as a good thing to go arm. Even if its cheap. I'd insted go x86 at this point. Think its better to stay ppc and imorpve os4 to a point its ready for average joe. Then one can start thinking of porting.

While that sure is nice and cheap, don't expect too much performance-wise. AFAICT, the GPU shares memory with the CPU, just like the Raspberry Pi. I think that shared memory graphics is probably one of the bottlenecks that makes the Raspberry Pi's performance slow. This is a really common configuration for these low-cost ARM chipsets.

My one experience with a shared memory PC was enough to convince me that it was worth paying extra for dedicated VRAM.

one small note from today. AROS is now booting natively on Raspberry PI

A thing like this wasn't available ~1.5 to 2 years ago, now was it? And it won't be available 2 years from now either.... computers are a moving target, and we are "snails".

Amiga needs a huge CASH transfusion..... A goal of mine is to get that happening one day.

Amiga IS the future of computing.

Why would you ask to get yourself banned? Not tolerant enough?
