Is a $35 PC the Future of Computing?

"Now, as exciting as it is to have access to computers that range from $25 for 128MB to $35 for the full 256 MB unit, there are some concerns that need to be addressed. And one of these concerns is whether you'll be able to readily buy one of these computers.

"In order for super-cheap computing to take off, it would help to have more than one group selling a reliable product. Thankfully, this appears to be on the horizon, even if it's not always at a $35 price point.

"For example, the CuBox may cost more at $135, but it offers the end user more out of the box. First, you can pre-order yours now instead of waiting for the Raspberry PI to offer pre-ordering themselves. Secondly, you can get more RAM for your unit with a rock solid 1GB vs the 128-256MB seen with the Raspberry PI."
