    Go give Vultr(referral) a try. | GNU/Linux http://debian.org

  • its is only a board - i see other people are bundling usb/hdmi adapters? seems unlikely the computer should cost less than the wires to plug it in :)

  • i can't find any real use for it right now so I don't buy it.

  • You have to admire their class at not calling it the 'black friday pi' or something equally stupid...

    They can bring it down to $1 if they sell only the pcb and the cpu/ram and everything else as ... extras :|

    oh well, even if I bought it I can't get it shipped anyway, my country is not in the list :( I've looked into element14 where I typically buy things from, but it sells like for twice the price(and of course, out of stock too)

  • Unfortunately, I blew my $5 allowance on a Big Mac this week. :(

  • @Hassan cpanel might be too much for it but if you're serious, I would be interested if it would really handle it with a few sites running under the hood
