Obviously a typo, I doubt there is a chipset still being made that ships with such little ram.

A typo or, even more likely, ignorance. You might be glad they did not write 512mb.

No typo, it's a $6 board. That's even cheaper than the Raspberry Pi Zero and the C.H.I.P. The Indiegogo page states Mbit. This is further confirmed here where it states the Allwinner V3s has integrated 64MB DDR2. Linux is actually quite capable of many things with only 64MB. It doesn't seem like that long ago that I was using a PC with less memory than that.

If only it wasn't written in x86 assembler.

Yes, quite right. The dev has this to say about it too.

Can't say that I'm as enthusiastic about 64MB than I was about 512MB. Not that Linux cannot scale down to that; just that the amount of bloat in modern code is now the norm unfortunately.

Perhaps as a hobbyist item, but not as a device I'd use often.

This situation is pretty demoralizing. The neo900 is so late that it hardly matters whether it is ever completed or not at this point. And the Pyra folks seem to be seriously considering installing a fan...
