Need a teeny tiny computer that can run Android or Linux? Only have $20? Well you’re in luck. When we first met the Orange Pi (get it?) the company was selling a nice Raspberry Pi clone for $15. Now they’re selling a souped up version with all the trimmings, the Orange Pi2.

The board includes an Ethernet port and three USB ports. It has 1GB of memory, H5 High Performance Quad-core 64-bit Cortex-A53, and a standalone graphics chip. It supports camera input as well as HDMI out and even has a physical power switch and IR blaster. In short it’s a mini computer that can probably play some games, display some HD video, and generally be used in all sorts of home-brew projects.

Here are the specs:

  • Quad-core 64-bit Cortex-A53
  • High-performance hexa-core Mali450 GPU
  • 1GB DDR3
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • HDMI with support for HDCP
  • Three USB 2.0 ports, one USB 2.0 OTG
  • IR receiver
  • Microphone
