“Keep in mind that this is a $9 Linux-based computer. There certainly are limitations to its capabilities although you shouldnâ€™t mistake the CHIP for a toy. You are reading the proof, right now, since all of this copy, the process of uploading it into the TNSâ€™s content manager, and graphics editing were done on the CHIP. It only took a little bit longer than usual.”
See Off-The-Shelf Hacker: This Story was Composed on a $9 Linux ComputerIf price matters, TLW is rolling on the floor laughing. Her PC cost ~$100, including delivery. She definitely has no problem getting her work and play done using the Odroid-C2, a $40 USD SoC, running Debian GNU/Linux. The one little niggle is that 1080p video works but is slow. That will be fixed sooner or later. Her old PC ran at 1280×1024, because it was slower. OTOH, audio is smooth and flawless.
She runs FireFox, Chromium, LibreOffice and Gimp without issue. Browsing the web is much faster on her new PC even if it is small and cheap.
