This is the buildout of one of the better IMSAI8080 clones around.
The LattePanda Alpha SBC is a bit of a beast not only in horse power, but in price. In this video I look at benchmarks on Windows, Linux and OSX and give my perspective on why LattePanda made a big mistake.
In this article I’ll be taking a look at the newly released NanoPC-T4 from the friendliest SBC makers on the market. I’ll be running through the usual lineup of tests that I do, but I reckon this board deserves two articles. So, this is Part 1.
In this review I’ll be taking a first look at the Omega2 and Omega2+. I managed to get in tests on GPIO, I2C, SPI, performance and came across issues like the dreaded 2mm pin spacing, solo powering and the micro-Linux O/S problems.

What cool features does the CHIP offer the Maker? Will Next Thing Co be able to hit the education market just as much as the Raspberry Pi? What sort of support do you expect from this tiny SBC?
