It appears that the demand is so high that the first batch was already sold out within an hour. So what makes this little critter so special?
First of all, it’s only $35 (without shipping) for a very small computer. It features an ARM11 processor, 256MB of RAM, 2 USB ports, a LAN port, an SD card slot, audio-out and HDMI-out. It’s capable of running an Ubuntu install or a version of Xbox Media Center, but nothing comes per-installed so you’ll be spending some time at a command line. It can even run Quake III, and stream video via airplay.
