Sounds nice. In the same price range you could get a raspberry pi zero which is a lot more powerful and has dedicated GPIO, but it doesn't have a network card unless you add one. Depends on the application I guess.
Well, if you need networking hardware, it's way better than the RPi or CHIP, otherwise go with one of them which lacks WiFi stuff. Or why not combining both?
I don't know much about routers, but would this router be useable as a replacement to home routers? And what about calculator Internet? (I know Kerm got Global Calcnet to work with the Sparkscore)
Ah ok thanks. It sounds like a good deal indeed if someone wants a cheap mini-computer or something.
That makes me wonder, though... if one of those cheap computers is powerful enough to rival low end PCs, then could someone just buy $15000 worth of C.H.I.P computers, RPi's and the WiFi routers above and build a beowulf cluster out of them or something?
Would it be fast enough to do stuff like factoring a 2048-bits RSA key in under 5 years?
