Everyone knows about the Pi, but some of us are looking for more power and price isn't really an issue. I found this little device, which can run many 7" LVDS and Parallel RGB Screens which you can get for CHEAP.

Here is the link:

For $199 you get:
Quad-Core ARM® Cortex A9 processor at 1GHz
1GByte of 64-bit wide DDR3 @ 532MHz
Three display ports (RGB, LVDS, and HDMI 1.4a)
Two camera ports (1xParallel, 1x MIPI CSI-2)
Multi-stream-capable HD video engine delivering
H.264 1080p60 decode, 1080p30 encode and 3-D video playback in HD
Triple Play Graphics system consisting of a Quad-shader 3D unit capable of 200MT/s, and a separate 2-D and separate OpenVG Vertex acceleration engine for superior 3D, 2D and user interface acceleration
Serial ATA 2.5 (SATA) at 3Gbps
Dual SD 3.0/SDXC card slots
PCIe port (1 lane)
Analog (headphone/mic) and Digital (HDMI) audio
Compact size (3″x3″)
10/100/Gb IEEE1588 Ethernet
10-pin JTAG interface
3 High speed USB ports (2xHost, 1xOTG)
1xCAN2 port

Now, I find that a pretty good deal. Here is a link to a cheap ass Parallel RGB screen that I may purchase (I'm pretty sure this is wholesale, so I might have to buy 10 or 20 minimum. But hey, they are $1-2 a piece)

So yeah, post other small devices. I know the Raspberry Pi isn't for everyone.
The efika mx series is sweet!
Sounds excellent but the price seems high, either way if I had the money I would buy it just to test it.

Same, it is a bit pricey, but it's worth it in my opinion.
I know what I am getting now, this isn't ARM, but it is a perfect portable Linux machine with an attachable WiFi card. Also, it uses the x86 architecture, so no ARM bullshit.

Another thing that I found interesting:

So this should be a perfect candidate for my portable Linux computer that I will be able to take with me on trips and run an IRC client amongst other fun apps. I also want to look into an VGA to LVDS converter board so I could use a small and portable screen with it. Also because of it's 500mhz processor, it uses incredibly low amounts of power; it might also be a cool project to use with solar panels.

But why? Do your parents cut off the power after a certain hour too?

Hah, no, luckily. Why not? Exploring alternative forms of energy is something I have always found interesting, living off the grid is a cool concept and I would just like to learn more about solar technologies. Now, in the summer I do go to my fathers place in the middle of the mountains, no power there, and solar is an option.

My Zipit is an alternative ARM device, I guess. Clocking in at 312 MHz with 32MB of RAM, it might not be much to write home about, but at a price tag of 20 bucks, it's the way to go if you want a cheap ARM linux setup that just works.
Newest Toy I bought for $149 USD (debugger is $99)
Well, not really a computer board like a RPi but rather a ARM based microcontroller dev / demo board.

There is the Odroid which uses Samsung's New Exynos5 series processors and their new octacore processor. Plan on getting one of these things and running xbmc and dolphin-emu.
The world is quaking from our Linux Thoughts!
