The biggest-little revolution: 10 single-board computers for under $100
It's not an overstatement to say these tiny computers have engendered a technological revolution of their own by pushing the limits of technological creativity achievable in the palm of one’s hand. As an added benefit, SBCs have served as cheaply obtainable educational tools for teaching the ever-important concepts of computer science to the younger generation. Test engineers, those seeking to build one-off projects, and hobbyists have embraced, and appreciate, this mini computer platform.

The following slideshow introduces a series of some of the most unique SBCs that have hit the market to date—all which can be purchased for under (or very nearly) $100.
