You Can Get A Full PC That's The Size Of A Credit Card For Just $45


Raspberry Pi, the $35 Linux-based computer for educational projects and home tinkering, has by and large cornered the market for those who need a quick and easy single-serving computer. But it appears to have new competition from the HummingBoard, a similar computing setup with a few spec improvements and slightly higher price.

Starting at $45 for the barebones device and going as high as $117, the HummingBoard aims to fill pretty much the same niche as the Raspberry Pi, but its various models boast faster processors, more RAM, and more USB connections.
