CHIP is World's First $9 Computer
  • CHIP Is A New Computer That Could Do Anything

This new computer could almost do anything and it would cost the user only $9.

If you believe that computers cannot get any smaller, well think again. The reason why we are saying this is because now there is a computer which is of the size of a credit card. The CHIP will only cost you $9 and it is a single-board computer which is able to run Linux.

You can even play the game of your dreams from your childhood. Yes this computer can play Quake. On board of this computer you are going to find 512 RAM, 1GHz processor and 4GB of storage.

The users can also install a light version of Debian and they can also plug CHIP into something called PocketCHIP. The PocketCHIP will add a touchscreen and a keyboard to the mix and it will become of the size of a Game Boy.

This is a must have computer because firstly it just costs you $9. If you want to add a VGA adapter then it will cost you $19 and if you are looking to add a HDMI adapter then that will cost you $24.

Many people are thinking by now that why we need a small computer when we can do everything on our laptop/desktop. Well the thing is that this computer can be used at several places. The company has some solid manufacturing as they are a Haxlr8r company.

The shipment of the products will start in a year’s time. You can use this device to experiment with wearables and micro devices. The people that made CHIP want more people to get involved in such projects and they want this area of interest to grow over the next few years.

So now we will have to wait and see what the people could do with this new computer. Many people these days are interested in working on computers. Even those who chose a different line of work in their early day are now looking to make something new in the IT world. This new $9 computer, CHIP, will surely spark innovation in the computer world.
