CHIP: $9 Linux ‘micro-computer’ takes aim at Raspberry Pi and Arduino

A New Chip Computer to Beat Pi and Arduino is Just US$9. At $9, the CHIP from Next Thing Co. uses purchasing volume and lessons learned from the first generation of Ultra-Compact computers to reduce the cost of this newest addition to the ultra-compact computer landscape.
