SolidRun's New Mini PC Can Run Linux and Android


Hi,

SolidRun's New Mini PC Can Run Linux and Android;
Quote:
Cheap and cheerful nettops from SolidRun

SolidRun made headlines a couple of years back with the CuBox, a small form factor PC measuring 2 × 2 × 2 inches and runs on a Marvell Armada 510 ARMv7 processor (800 MHz) and 1 GB of DDR3. The single-board machine made quite a splash given its low price of $135. Now, SolidRun is doing us one better with a mini computer priced under $50.
Looks like I will be getting a couple of the SolidRun CuBox models. Really like the specs for this one;
Quote:
Other higher priced options in the CuBox-i series include up to quad-core CPUs, as much as 2 GB of RAM, Gigabit Ethernet, microUSB, OpenGL|ES 2.0 GPU with OpenCL, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth, eSata 3 Gbps, and a built-in clock. Pricing on the higher end models goes up as far as $120.
I have several RaspPi setups for experimentation within the LAB.

I will see if SlackwareARM will work on one of the CuBox. I really like experimentation & play on the ARM. Reminds me when the first micro was available back in the early 70s' and the field was starting to bloom.

Talk about a 'RUSH'!

Loads of fun!

Hi onebuck!

Forgive me, but I just found your message while I'm installing a dev system in qemu for slackwarearm. I am really interested in how you did with getting slack on the cubox. Any special tuning required? Really like the cubox, looking forward to tinkering with the cubox-i.

Hi,

Sadly, I have not acquired cubox yet. Too many things on my platter right now.

Probably after the New Year. Or some other ARM board.

These sound great. I, too, have a plate full for the moment, but shall try one later in the year.
Puppy have a couple of Arm pups going, and, as I'm a Puupy addict, I'll go for a Deb or Ubuntu styled Arm Pup. Can't get into Slackware, it just doesn't appeal to me like Deb styled Pups do.
I need to get my Raspi out and up first though. I've been waiting on the new 9" Pi screen, HD & HDMI that's in development. Should be out in Feb (fingers X)
What's the use of a tiny, 5V PC if you need a 18", 220V screen to use it out & about ?
I have plans for my RasPi, but the CuBox sounds too good to miss

I have recently received a CuBox-i4Pro from Israel. The specifications look great for a home file server particularly with eSATA and low power consumption.

Unfortunately mine arrived with an ethernet port that does not work. I have sent several emails however I have yet to receive a reply. Interestingly enough the default Debian install they have does not have any drivers for the built in wifi.

Have any of you bought or used a CuBox-i and, if so, have you had any issues?

Regards,
Stefan
