This ARM-Based Ubuntu Box Only Costs $100

Forget your Raspberry Pi and all of those Android dongles : this quad-core, ARM-based box claims to offer up a PC-like experience for just $100.

The Utilite, made by Compulab, will pack either a single, dual or quad-core Freescale i.MX6 Cortex-A9 MPCore processor, up to 4GB of RAM, an mSATA SSD, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, HDMI and DVI-D outputs, four USB 2.0 ports, a micro-USB connector, audio jacks, a micro-SD XD slot and two ultra-mini RS232 interfaces. Aaaaand breathe.

That's all squeezed into a frame 5.3 x 3.9 x 0.8 inches in size, that consumes 3-8W using a 10-16V supply. It even manages multi-stream 1080p H.264 on-chip decoding, so watching video should be mercifully reliable for a cheap computer. All in it sounds like a steal for the $100 base model. It goes on sale next month. [Fanless Tech via Engadget]
