Pi Zero pro's
-On-board HDMI port
-MicroSD slot

Pi Zero con's
-requires various adapters and dongles because LOL micro-HDMI/micro-USB, no ethernet port, no onboard wifi

CHIP pro's
-On-board wifi and bluetooth
-Ethernet port

CHIP con's
-Composite video only, unless you buy the $15 HDMI attachment
-No MicroSD slot, just 4GB storage built into it

I wish the Pi Zero and CHIP would fuck and have a baby so that the best aspects of both of them combined into a single $5-$9 tiny computer. On their own, neither are perfect.

It's a niche product.
The smaller size will be useful for some, but most people buying it are doing so because it's only $5. They don't see the other costs. Accessories and shit.
An anon earlier mentioned the orange oi pc that's $15, I'd say that's a pretty good deal if price is an issue.
If you want community support get the pi2 or pi b.

>>51611059
That's not a powered hub, but it looks pretty cool.
I wouldn't use it since it'll draw all its power directly from the pi.

Still, it's going to cost more than $5, and too many people ignore that when they decide to buy it.

I think it actually is, it seems to have a small dc jack on the side. It just doesn't come with a power adapter.

>I wouldn't use it since it'll draw all its power directly from the pi.
That isn't a problem if the Pi power supply is decent.
At least the Pi2B can handle 1.2A power draw without problems.

>>51614898
>Or is there a cheaper alternative?
Everything?
>>
>>51614970
>Everything?

How is that even possible? (I don't actually know, so inform me.)
A Raspberry Pi Zero is 512MB and 1GHz for $5. It superficially seems that there would be a way to hook many of them in parallel to make a more powerful computer.
>>
>>51613487
It sucks, but the only things that can play 1080p 10-bit video smoothly are core2duos or better.
Meaning you should build an HTPC if you don't want to be completely disappointed.
>>
>>51615047
Because there would be a ton of overhead with a Pi cluster - not just processing power but also costs.

Two 1GHz computers networked into a cluster configuration are way way less functional than even a 1GHz dual-core.

Not to mention frequency means shit, Pi has a shitty ARMv6 instruction set
>>
>>51615047
you could make a cluster of them, but the zero's cpu is just a higher clocked pi1 cpu, which is dog slow
most of the power is in its gpu cores, and a cluster of gpus is a rather special case
it is absolutely possible to make a cluster of them, but i'm not sure if it would really be any cheaper than something like a single ITX board with a "bigger" cpu/gpu

it's all down to performance per dollar, that is, it won't do any good if you had say, an arbitrary performance of "5" for the $5 machine, vs. a $50 machine with a performance of "100", as that would make the $50 twice as cost-effective, even compared to $50 worth of $5 machines in a cluster
>>
>>51604372
Yes, this has piqued my interest. I'll spend 5 dollars and some time for pranks.
>>
>>51615047
also, incase you don't know, there's a big difference between programs that function on a single machine, and programs that run on clusters
you can't expect to run any normal "big" programs directly on a cluster, programs for clusters need to be designed such that the job they perform can be split n-ways and distributed between the nodes of the cluster

a simple example would be a program which encodes a folder full of mp3's into say, opus format, the program may move an mp3 file to each node and instruct them to encode that mp3, and send the resulting opus file back (to the main/controlling/master node), thereby speeding up the overall goal of encoding every file in the folder

Or you know, you could just buy a PSP.

You also need battery and charging circuit

Also, you're probably better off with the PocketCHIP

>>51615659
It would end up being cheaper and smaller than a used PSP, plus the fun of building it yourself.

>>51615715
Fuck, I did forget the batteries, although why would I need a charging circuit if I made it run on AA batteries?

>Also, you're probably better off with the PocketCHIP
Why? What extra features does it offer that would be beneficial in this case, other than incredibly expensive shipping, exposed PCB, and a really shitty keyboard?
>>
>>51603843
All the shit you can do with an Arduino, and even more.

People jump on it just because it's $5, but really, this isn't as much of a "tiny computer" as others, and more of a hobbyist board that packs more power than usual, and that's mostly designed to be used for its GPIO and embedded in stuff thanks to its small size.

The lack of Ethernet is the most problematic, on top of the crucial lack of a sound output, and the small size USB and HDMI make it highly unpractical. I'd love to use it myself for small portable devices, but still, it's going to be a lot of trouble with all those adapters.
>>
>>51615800
it comes with a much better screen, custom case, chargeable battery, and is more powerful.
>>
>>51615839
Pi sucks for that though.
BeagleBone is much better for GPIO use.

Or ESP8266 if all you want is a few pins controlled by wifi-capable processor.
>>
>>51615839
>The lack of Ethernet is the most problematic

Use a USB->Ethernet adaptor. That's all it is on the model B's anyway.

>on top of the crucial lack of a sound output

There's digital audio on the HDMI. Or use a USB soundcard.
>>
>>51615884
>BeagleBone is much better for GPIO use.
But not $5 anon.
>>
>>51615923
Or just get a regular Pi that comes with both?

Seems you missed the point of my post.
>>
>>51615800
>It would end up being cheaper and smaller than a used PSP, plus the fun of building it yourself.

You're still not gonna play it.
PSP has a nice screen and solid controls and can be found dirt cheap.
Plus your little autism box doesn't play PSP games, or anything made past 1991 really.
>>
>>51615861
>much better screen
That's larger, I chose the 2.8" screen specifically because it's small.

>custom case
Featuring exposed PCB, the goal of a case is to protect the shit inside, not leave parts exposed so you can kill the thing with ESD. Also playing older games with an actual gamepad > using a keyboard with your thumbs.

>is more powerful
>same amount of RAM
>same clock rate
>slightly newer processor architecture
Barely, probably won't even make a noticeable difference.

>>51615966
>be found dirt cheap.
At the low price of about $70 where I live.

>Plus your little autism box doesn't play PSP games
...and if one wasn't looking to play PSP games?

>or anything made past 1991 really.
When do you think the Gameboy Advance was made?
>>
>>51615960
The point of your post seemed to be to complain about things that weren't actually a problem?

For a start you're making a bizarre assumption that every portable device needs Ethernet. There's plenty of applications where Ethernet would be unnecessary.
>>
>>51616034
>The point of your post seemed to be to complain about things that weren't actually a problem?
My post isn't complaining about anything, simply explaining that the Zero isn't meant to be a small computer like other Pis. And yes, a small computer likely needs ethernet.

I think you're trying to disagree with me when we're both saying the same thing.

70 dollars is nothing for a nice comfy, well made handheld that plays most things with no fuss and can even play project diva.

Even if you do manage to replicate the usability of a cfw'd psp, it's going to end up costing you much more than $70, and that's being generous.
I'm sure your time isn't completely worthless.

Adding the necessary components for it to use AA batteries isn't going to almost double the price.

No, c++ has no compatibility with the pi zero because it's partitioned arm processor is incapable of running any OS like Win10 that c++ supports. Save your money anon, and get a Surface Pro if you want to learn programming, it will make your life a lot easier.

If you compare it to equally spec'd machines (and by equally spec'd I mean equal specs, no Atom CPU's or 1366x768 displays) the new Macbook isn't even that expensive. The Samsung Ativ Book 9 and HP EliteBook Foilio 1020 both start at $1199.

The whole Apple tax thing is something majorly blown out of proportion by winshills doing shitty comparisons with i7's compared to Xeon's, regular RAM to EEC RAM, TN panel monitors to IPS ones and so forth.
>>
>>51616886
Good to know.
Do you thing it's possible to try Mac OS X on vmware ?
It would be stupid to spit on it without at least trying it.

>both start at $1199
>Apple tax
Don't know if it's the same but I understood "the brand price". As on every product one part you pay comes from the brand. The same product (if exists) without the brand name on it is less expensive.
In that case, it seems that everyone does so.

Better shove it up your ass, at least you will be able plug some cables or let out the antenna for the WiFi, if you see what I mean.

>>51619401
>What's wrong with aesthetic ?
Nothing.
If you buy an Orange Pi, I thing the orientation of the CPU is one of the last things you should see in the aesthetic.
Maybe it was to make it the more compact.
Yet it is somehow a little frustrating to see that it is the only thing not aligned.
Some may say it's ugly just because it's only a card with soldered component.
But after all aesthetic is just a point of view.
