A war in low-cost computers may be in the making as a new $15 board computer that could challenge Raspberry Pi 3 finally ships.
On paper, the Pine 64 is as powerful as the $35 Raspberry Pi 3. It can be a PC replacement, and the most expensive model, with Wi-Fi, is priced at $29.
The initial shipments are going to backers that poured a total of $1.7 million into a Kickstarter campaign to develop the computer. Pine64, the computer’s maker, is shipping out small batches after delays and slowly ramping up production, according to posts in the company’s forums and on its Kickstarter page.
