Well, you can’t run Windoze on this baby – but then again, maybe that isn’t such a bad thing.
KPexEA writes with this excerpt from geek.com:
“[Game developer David] Braben has developed a tiny USB stick PC that has an HDMI port on one end and a USB port on the other. You plug it into an HDMI socket and then connect a keyboard via the USB port, giving you a fully functioning machine running a version of Linux.
The cost? $25.
The hardware being offered is no slouch either. It uses a 700MHz ARM11 processor coupled with 128MB of RAM and runs OpenGL ES 2.0, allowing for decent graphics performance with 1080p output confirmed. … We can expect it to run a range of Linux distributions, but it looks like Ubuntu may be the distro it ships with. That means it will handle web browsing, run office applications, and give the user a fully functional computer to play with as soon as it’s plugged in.
All that and it can be carried in your pocket or on a key chain.”
What gets me is that this thing still has more processing power & disk capacity than the box that ran Realm v1.0 all those years ago.
Damn. Just, damn.
