Ultra Affordable Computing

I often see Raspberry Pi 4/5 thought of as a bad deal as a budget daily desktop compared to N100 machines and I agree to an extent but what about at the even lower segment? I can see anything really compare to the $15 Raspberry Pi Zero 2W which requires having some basics but for $15 it's a strong price point. What isn't strong is that it can barely run a web browser even the tailored version provided by Rpi people themselves. What else is there at this low price points?

    >trying to do anything productive with a arm machine

    Bro if you are a total poorgay you need to buy a used dell optiplex off fb marketplace or eBay for 50 bucks. Raspberry pis are made for niche use cases where power consumption or gpio is paramount

      I agree with you, I'm posting from a workstation that blows out any Raspberry Pi but I think this is a strong opportunity to create value. There's the mangopi which is a RISC-V machine that seem to cater to the same niche of $15 but performance seems even worse but I feel like things like such machines will be able to avoid any hidden fees like ARM licensing and might improve in the near future but I don't think a used ancient dell optiplex is worth the 50 bucks when the typical public library computer is free with the same capabilities

    ARM is the standard now. The low specs on the Pi are the problem though. I agree that they're only good for embedded applications.

    Do you hate x86?

      Even skilled x86gays hate x86. We stick to it because it's the most common ISA for commodity hardware and has a lot of features but it's objectively moronic.

        x86 is based and redpilled and other architectures are memeshit designed by CS grad memeBlack folk that love RISC (because it lets them be lazy and let "compiler devs" "fix" their problems).
        Also back compat.

          Sorry but I don't care about the opinions of people moronic enough to pay for a IQfy pass

            I'd rather snort coke than talk about things I have no idea about just to make a fool out of myself

            x86 assembly is easey to program. If you don't know how you should just learn.

            I know x86-64. I also know MIPS and RISC V. You have to be mentally deranged to prefer that Intel abortion to something normal

    There shouldn't be any affordable computing. Jack up the prices and get every homosexual normie off the pc back to phones

    old used Chromebooks are cheap as frick (they are given for free to schools, so when they upgrade they are offed for pennies in bulk, and then the resellers ask frick all since they payed basically nothing). can run loonix or windows on it too

    i picked up a t440s in good condition for $50

    your best bet is probably a used low end business desktop, im sure they can be found for under 50

    SoC's are at least 50% a psyop to normalise soldered on RAM, CPU, etc. and shit to future tech enthusiasts.
