It is pretty good. It provides a Python Interpretor but Version 2.7. I
could see It has an 1 Ghz
ARM processor. But for some reason provides Gnu tools on the Computer,
rather than an
Cross compiler. Claims to run an default Xwindows with Menus like
Productivity. I have send
them a mail to check I found some problems, Don't want to disclose the
question. But would
later update.

It has scp and ssh installed, It allows you to connect via HDMI to
laptop's(Saw some documentation)/
TV Monitor. Has games, more like to old nintendo games.

Pocket C.H.I.P is close to 60$ with shipping. Count another 10$ at
minimum if you are outside US.
