I just saw this video on youtube on the Chip by one of my fav youtube presenters I love his videos :)I Only heard of the Chip recently.
it is amazing what they can do for something as cheap as Chips :DHave you got a Chip?so cheap at
nine Dollers ,
(stylized as C.H.I.P.) is a single-board computercrowdfunded by now-defunct Next Thing Co. (NTC), released as open-source hardware running open-source software
So what single board computer do you use apart from Raspberry PI that is.https://youtu.be/52kBZtiPHq4?t=47 watching this video I did not realize the Chip has been out some time. :oops:By the time you get all the extra stuff to make it work the price goes up a lot.It was advertised as "the world's first $9 computer". CHIP and related products are discontinued. NTC has since gone insolvent.

This one looks interesting, but it suffers from a lack of support :(I like the idea of an M,2 but the price racks up with all the extra stuff you have to get.

This one looks interesting: you can get an NVME SSD or 4x SATA adapter for it because it brings out the PCIe pins:
NanoPi M4V2. I worked quite a lot on the RPi (v2 back then) and the lack of serious storage support always bothered me.
