Yikes from 60 k$ to 91 k$ is a few hours!!!

Wonder what that 8000mAh battery will give in hours of use? It's removable - yay!

These devices are borderline handheld-ish.
Way too big imo.

I stumbled onto this. It might not be the best handheld GNU/Linux machine for 2017 but it caught my attention. The Lichee Pi Zero is a $6 single-board computer with various add-ons available which can turn it into a "mini laptop" or a gaming handheld. It already has mainline Linux support since v4.11-rc1.

This certainly ticks quite a few of the correct boxes:

Allwinner V3S
runs Debian,
has connections exposed for ease,
not locked into SMT-only access
and best of all, no 18month waiting for delivery (? we can hope?)

One small gotcha I just noticed. It has only 512Mb RAM, that's only 64MB.

Still, I think it could be a fun little toy to play with.

that is either a typo or downright deceitful.

to the extent that a fraction of people even understand the difference, that fraction uderstands Mb as throughput and MB as capacity.

An error, surely? The original Pi came with 256, or was it 512 MB, so 64MB makes no sense given the peripherals shown.
