The Atomic Pi looks pretty good for the price.

The SOC on it is the same as the one in the tablet I got a few years ago, only the tab has 4GB RAM.

That should work in the Retroflag Game Boy case.

That is seriously cool, but holy shit that board is $409 US without the GPU.

Yeah it's way too expensive. It is cool seeing how powerful these things can be, it bodes well for the future of the cheaper boards.

Damn, how are they keeping it at the same $35 price? Can’t wait to see some RetroPie videos, specifically N64.

I'm definitely interested, I was thinking of building some retropie machines for Christmas presents so this is a very pleasant surprise.

Hmm! I might grab one /goes to grab one.

Pi 4 1GB $59.95 AUD
Pi 4 2GB $66.95 AUD
Pi 4 4GB $94.95 AUD... EH???? :rolleyes:

From the pricing we can deduce that 1GB of ram costs $7 AUD per GB unless you want 4GB... then it costs nearly double that PER GB for some reason??
$59, $69, and $79 would make sense...

I am a little let down they didn't add a sata port to boot off of.


ian if you need one, and it is cheaper to ship from 08106 let me know.
