If a few years ago, someone said that for $ 35 you can get a functional personal computer on it would just be laughed at.However, now a mini-PCs are sold at a price of $ 5 or $ 9 – remember Raspberry Pi Zero and CHIP. However, these systems can not be called strong. You can not call a powerful and new miniature PC PINE64. But its performance is significantly better than that of counterparts, which are sold for less than $ 20. Developers PINE64 equipped with a quad-core device Allwinner 1.2 GHz 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53, 1 GB of RAM and other buns. Everything is offered at a price of $ 15 for a younger model, or $ 19 for seniors. Soon, a campaign to raise funds for this miniature computer is scheduled to launch on Kickstarter.
However, it was for $ 15 you can order a modification with 512 MB of RAM and port 10/100 Ethernet. But for $ 19, it is already possible to get a model with 1GB of RAM, Gigabit Ethernet and additional connectors for connecting optional modules – camera, touch panel and display adapter. Both models- graphics ARM Mali 400MP2, two USB 2.0 ports, HDMI port with support for resolutions 3840 x 2160 and a standard 3.5 mm audio port. Built-in data storage, but there are memory card slot with support for up to a volume of 256 GB. As an operating system, you can use Android 5.1, Ubuntu Linux and other operating systems. For full-featured PCs connect a keyboard, mouse, display and network. Here there are compatible with the Raspberry Pi 40-pin connector for connection of additional hardware, which is available under the “Malinka”.
