We've been telling you about really cheap computers. Like this computer that costs only $9.
But none are quite as cute as Endless Mobile's Endless Mini and its larger, more powerful Endless. The starting price is just $79.
These are fairly powerful computers, given the price. The 24GB Endless Mini runs on a 1.5 GHz processor (Amlogic S805 Quad Core ARM Cortex A5). It's comparable to a cellphone and runs on a Linux-based operating system. (See photos above and below.)
It has a 1GB of RAM, 24GB of solid state storage, an Ethernet port, three USB ports, 3.5mm stereo connection and microphone, and HDMI composite video.
For a little bit more money, $99, the 32GB Endless Mini has 2GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0 technology, and it's Wi-Fi enabled (802.11 b/g/n).
For more functionality, the oddly cute Endless is more powerful and has more functionality. Prices start at $189. (See photos next page.)
The makers of Endless Mini and Endless computers have noble aspirations. Note: There are tech downsides you need to know about.
