$37 ODROID-C1+ an Raspberry Pi 2 Alternative by Hardkernel

Now Hardkernel launched new model ODROID-C1+ for $37. It’s basically a Raspberry Pi-like mini computer with an Amlogic S805 ARM Cortex-A5 quad-core processor rather than a Broadcomm chip.

The ODROID-C1+ is esteemed to be the most powerful low-cost single board computer available, as well as being an extremely versatile device. Featuring a quad-core Amlogic processor, advanced Mali GPU, and Gigabit Ethernet, it can function as a home theater set-top box, a general purpose computer for web browsing, gaming and socializing, a compact tool for college or office work, a prototyping device for hardware tinkering, a controller for home automation, a workstation for software development, and much more.

Some of the modern operating systems that run on the ODROID-C1+ are Ubuntu, Android, Fedora, ARCHLinux, Debian, and OpenELEC, with thousands of free open-source software packages available. The ODROID-C1+ is an ARM device — the most widely used architecture for mobile devices and embedded 32-bit computing. The ARM processor’s small size, reduced complexity and low power consumption makes it very suitable for miniaturized devices such as wearables and embedded controllers.
