Chinese retailers have started selling
a miniature Linux computer
that is housed in a 3.5-inch plastic case slightly larger than a USB thumb drive. Individual units are available online
The small computer has an AllWinner A10 single-core 1.5GHz ARM CPU, a Mali 400 GPU, and 512MB of RAM. An HDMI port on the exterior allows users to plug the computer into a television. It outputs at 1080p and is said to be capable of playing high-definition video.
