It seems like a given that computers get faster, better and cheaper. And then, more amazing features are added, and the price goes up again. But any computer you get now is better than the last computer you had a few years ago, which is a good thing for your budget.
Normally, you want to stay away from computers that are too inexpensive. But there are still bargains out there, like the $35 Raspberry Pi. But not more of a bargain than this new computer. It's by far the lowest cost ever for a brand new computer.
The new Chip computer does everything you'd want from a computer - it browses the Web, edits documents, lets you check your email and plays games. And it costs $9.
You read that right.
Next Thing Co. funded the Chip through Kickstarter, raising $2 million from almost 40,000 people. And it had only requested $50,000 to start. So, a lot of people are excited about it, but why?
