    VIA launches $49 Android PC

    The price keeps dropping!

    The Raspberry Pi has set the price bar very low for a fully functional PC, and no one has managed to get anywhere near it yet. VIA is within spitting distance though, with the announcement today of a $49 Android PC (APC) system.

    Just like the Raspberry Pi, the APC ships as just a board without a case. It takes the form of a Neo-ITX motherboard that you can just plug into a TV or monitor, hook up some peripherals and start using. And it is tiny, measuring just 17 x 8.5cm.

    wow! that is an incredible piece of equipment.
    i especially like the vga port and the fact it comes with built-in storage.

    And as powerful as your smartphone!
