    Next Thing‘s CHIP, joins the race to build the world’s most affordable computer. CHIP is a fully functional Linux-powered computer and is just about one-quarter the size of a banana and one-quarter the price of the Raspberry Pi. Yes, that means it’s only $9!

    CHIP packs a 1GHz Allwinner R8 Cortex A8 processor with a built-in Mali400 GPU, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of flash storage. It also features a micro USB port, composite headphone/mic port, Wifi and Bluetooth. All this is powered by attaching a LiPo battery, DC power, or through the micro USB. The hardware is powerful enough to power LibreOffice, the Chromium browser, and a whole host of games and programs to teach programming

    Very interesting! 10 years from now, gaming PCs would be that small… probably cheeky

    It’s kind of a nice novelty I guess, but who will want them?  Some very poor parts of the world maybe?  I can’t see there being much of a market for something like this, even though it is interesting to think about.

    Looks like a smartphone in the disguise for me.
