PINE A64 is the world’s first 64-bit expandable Quad Core 1.2Ghz supercomputer, tablet, media center, and more… starting at just $15.
The PINE64 is definitely the most affordable 64 bit single board computer on the market today that delivers a bunch of power in such a small package. Similar products like the CHIP or Raspberry Pi Zero are good, but their boards are very plain and not too modular. Despite the price difference of those two boards ($5, $9), by the time you add components to them to sort of match the PINE64, the price goes way above $15. Many of these boards aren’t capable of running 64 Bit Android 5.1.1 and the PINE64 A64 board can perform that flawlessly. With Gigabit internet, 4K media output, the PINE64 can really be used for media streaming box, a cloud file server, IoT controller, and even be integrated into many robotics or electronic projects. The base board is $15 and comes with 1.2 Ghz ARM powered CPU as well as 512MB of DDR3 memory. The HDMI, ethernet port, audio out, and I/O expansions slots are all basic and is included in all the board models. The $19 and $29 models have a 1GB and 2GB memory respectively.
PINE64 also is developing a bunch of accessories and add ons, making this board your ultimate development device for your projects. With a power draw of only approximate 2.5 watts, the PINE64 can really save up to 100x in power costs, allowing countries with less resources to be able to afford to run electronics.

PINE64 comes from the combination of two constant variables – Pi and Euler’s Number e and 64 comes from our 64-Bit computing power.
The PINE64 can be purchased with the latest Android software built in, or you can upload the latest version of Linux. Out of the box, with Android Lollipop 5.1 version installed, you immediately get access to over 1.6 million apps on the Google Play market, downloadable in a few clicks.
Build your own computer, 3D Printer control panel, video game console, 4K streaming media player, robotics project, connected home device, and more… Run apps immediately out of the box such as Angry Birds, Minecraft, office productive software, or add a camera and run Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and more.
