It should be, I was playing N64 and PlayStation games on a tablet with a 700MHz A8

>>51535879
I'm hyped because I want to build a just because cluster, and these are cheap enough to have a decent number of nodes with an easily justifiable price.

>>51535888
Yeah, I'm trying to find one, probably going to have to wait
>>
>>51535879
It's literally $5. Skip ONE Big-Mac this week and you can have something that will last a lot longer. You should use the opportunity to be a bit creative instead of shoveling food into your face fatty McFattykins
>>
>>51535901
Forgive my ignorance, but what is the point of a cluster? What kind of advantages would you get?
>>
Anyone found where to buy them? I saw they were free with MagPi issue 40, but they seem sold out everywhere as well.
>>
>>51535914
Clusters are advantageous for workloads that can be heavily threaded. You have a controller node that distributes tasks and collects results to and from the slave nodes
>>
>>51535904
I already have a computer that does everything the raspi can, but well.

>>
A computer - even one as minimal as this - for $5 is seriously impressive to me. Not much use to me personally, as a computer that's not networked is pretty useless to me, but I can see the potential it has. I'm half tempted to get one anyway, largely for the novelty value.
>>
>>51535962
>not being able to buy a toy makes you suicidal
>>
I'd rather spend $15 and get a much much better board

Better even than the RPi 2
>>
>>51535981
Look where you are mate, this is /g/, it's basically all about toys anyway.
>>
>>51535951
All the shills on /g/ saying "I totally bought this" or "There are so awesome, I'm totally buying this"
Turns out my late 90's vocabulary has the best of me, because I can't find anywhere that hasn't totally sold out of the Zero.
>>51535962
Brings me back to when the first Pi was just released and everyone was waiting for the things.
Wonder how much more efficient they are at making the things now?
Looks like the things just have the SoC and a few other discrete components, not all that much to source.
>>
>>51535983
"Better" can be pretty subjective. What is "much much better" to you for $15?
>>
What SBC are you rocking /g/?
I've got a CI20. I was hyped for the CI40 with its hyperthreading, but the specs put me off a bit.
>>
>mini HDMI
>USB-OTG adapter required for USB-A peripherals
Why? Because we don't already have too many adapters for everything? How precious is that 2mm thickness?

Those adapters will definitely cost you more than the device itself.

This almost sounds like a perfect use-case for USB-C if the port wasn't so new.

I say it's fucking impressive. The only reason to buy is the GPIO though.
>>
They not sold out everywhere retards.

>5,69eur - you literally could buy another one for everything you want to do. That's the power of this shit - want a little server application - buy one. Want clock? Buy another one.
>>
>>51536043
Mommy says I don't have enough good boy points to buy it :/
>>
>>51536043
Because it's more than $15
>>
>>51536023
>This almost sounds like a perfect use-case for USB-C if the port wasn't so new.
Probably would be. But the primary goal for the Pi is being cheap.
>>
>>51536053
So what is $15 that has the features you want?
>>
>>51536070
Well, let's see, compared to the Pi Zero, my $15 board has all this >>51536029

Which is also what the Pi 2 B has

But the Pi 2 B is way more than $15, so I went for the $15 one
>>
>>51536050
Anywhere with intl shipping have them in stock? Every US site I've checked is sold out
>>
>>51536078
And what is your $15 board?

I sorta want one, but I would only use it for running a tor bridge relay, so I think the pi 2 is better right?

To those who have Orange or Banana or whatever, are they truly as compatible as they claim? Experience has taught me to be a bit skeptical of anything that's claimed to be "oh yeah, totally compatible with X".

>>
These things have zero network connection is that correct?
>>
>>51536341
you have to use a USB Ethernet adapter
>>
>>51536341
They don't have ethernet or wifi built-in, but I guess one could some sort of a microusb wifi thing.
>>
>>51536325
you need a display too.
>>
>>51536288
Im >>51536223 I had some frustration over installing a not-so-usual usb wifi adapter (tp link tlwn722n) but otherwise than that I cant remember anything that wasnt compatible.

though Id go for raspberry pi if it had a SATA port, since there are so much more things already prebuilt for you, all kinds of firmware, and automated scripts for obnoxious wifi adapters and such

>>51536395
CLI still needs a display. Unless you're using it by remote over the network, but at that point it's no longer a desktop as such.

Alternatively, you could hook a dumb terminal up to it, but that's still technically a display.
>>
>>51535846
why would they use microusb?
Even if they wanted to save space, you are still going to waste more just by using an adapter
>>
>>51536472
It'll ultimately be because it's cheaper - either for the ports themselves or the space on the board for them.

i dont know anything about programming or coding but i'd quite like to learn some things

should i get one of these? what cool uses do they have besides emu/netflix systems?
>>
>>51536561

the regular pi's only have 100mbit ethernet which shares bandwidth with the usb port, you'd get nowhere near the bandwidth saturation of your line using any pi variant
>>
>>51536649
What about orange?
>>
>>51536633
If you can't think of uses for these things then don't buy one. There are people who actually have uses for these but can't find them in stock because faggots waste the supplies.
Not that I care anyway.

You can setup a small torrent/web server if you are into that. or a vpn server too
Real powerusers would be making their own circuits and connect them to the pi via gpio to control them

I don't care if it costs $50, I want one of these pissboards with hardware that I can actually use without having some third-party shim made of petrified cow shit holding it together.

That CPU is very, VERY slow, like the P2 200-300MHz days. It cannot under any circumstances play h264 10b, it barely handles DTS sound.

Still, you may get it to play with something like Plex and transcoding, with the inherent quality loss compared to native playback. It may not be noticeable.

Nice math there.
But I am 50% sure you did that math wrong.
>>
>>51540585
so you're 1/4 sure?
>>
>>51538116
definitely

ODROID

>>51538213
of all the comments in this thread, *thats* the one youve decided to call out

>screen
you can buy a 7 inch screen for 30$, the only expensive part. Even poor people have old CRT TVs lying around you know...

>mouse
1$ mouse

>keyboard
5$ keyboard

>audio
1$ earphones

>for the actual board
5$

That all adds up to
30+1+5+1+5
=41$

if you cant spend 41$, you should really reconsider your priorities

I'm a normie, but I think Raspberry Pi is brilliant as fuck.
But... be serious, do I need one?
>>
>>51540686
Don't forget about a USB hub to plug the USB shit in
>>
>>51540734
2$
>>
>>51540758
and an ethernet adapter for the thing to be useful
>>
>>51540758
sorry, make that hub 5$, thats the lowest
usb to ethernet adapter is 3$-5$, wifi is around the same
>>
>>51540800
where are you quoting those prices from?
>>
>>51540800
Add all that shit together and you're better off buying the much more powerful Orange Pi PC, which is like $15
>>
>>51540822
cheapest stuff from ebay
>>
>>51540493
did you learn to speak english like a month ago?
>>
>>51540800
Including those, that makes the nigger rig's pricetag something like 51$ considering you go for one of the networking options (either ethernet or wifi). Not too shabby, you can even get CRT TVs for free, so that might even go as low as 21$, a lot lower than raspi 2

So as a regular and average retard what will this miniature computer do for me?

Have any CHIPs even shipped yet?
Meanwhile my brand new RPi Zero shipped 2 hours after I ordered it.
(oh the no/no thing is because I didn't want the overpriced accessories/sd card stuff with it)

Saw some tweets about MagPi on my way to class, managed to grab one from Smiths in Cambridge market square at about 8:50 this morning. Apparently they only received 6 but will get another 19 tomorrow. I downloaded the mag and read it this evening, haven't opened the physical copy. I've ordered the £4 micro usb/hdmi adapter bundle from Pi swag and will wait until at least then before opening it. In the mean time if anyone I know says they have kids that wanted one and can't get hold of it I might just let them have it. Not really sure what I'm going to use it for at the moment.
