Giayee $46 quad core Ubuntu Mini PC hit the market again after Raspberry Pi and Beaglebone

 

In early 2008 PC World named Ubuntu the "best all-around Linux distribution available today".

Since hackers have figured out how to run Ubuntu and other Linux-based software on android or other portable devices. We’ve seen no shortage of low-powered, low-cost mini PCs hit the market.

 

Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone Black, the ODroid-X, FXI Cotton Candy,  and Via’s APC lineup are all truly affordable and compact computing devices. They all share one thing in common – their CPU hardware is based on ARM’s Cortex-A series of processors. Intel may be the still dominant company in PC and Windows markets, but it’s having a much tougher time in the mobile world.

Based on what we know, ARM looks set to retain its lead for the foreseeable future. Thus, Ubuntu ARM mini pc is booming.

 

With the success of comparable projects such as Raspberry Pi and Beaglebone, miniature PCs are apparently all the rage these days. Now, Giayee is throwing yet another option into the ring, an ARM-based Mini PC running Ubuntu(it can also run android,your choice) called P105 (http://www.giayee.com/android-pc/p105-mini-pc.html).

 

<img>http://www.giayee.com/uploadfile/2014/0311/20140311033638198.jpg</img>;

The Giayee P105 mini PC is equipped with a Rockchip RK3188 Quad core ARM Cortex A9 1.6GHz CPU.By comparison, the Raspberry Pi is powered by a single-core 700MHz ARM 11 CPU ,BeagleBone Black use a 1GHz AM335x Cortex-A8 chip,  and Via’s APC lineup base on a 800MHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor. Besides, P105 Mini PC features 2GB of RAM, and  comes with 8GB or 16GB of storage,support for 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 10/100M Ethernet.

 

Additionally, there are more outputs than the Raspberry Pi for increased flexibility and compatibility with other hardware. There are 3 USB hosts on P105 while Raspberry Pi just has one.

 

As for the price, it's much more cheaper than ordinary desktop computers, starts from $46 while ordinary desktop computers sold at $200~300.

 

Mini PC is finding some growth within Ubuntu OS. Intel describes it as a large potential market. In the future, it can serve as an affordable first computer for people in developing countries, or as an environmentally friendly choice as a secondary computer for people in developed countries.
