Default Mini Android PC

Anyone own the mini android pc, I need something new to tinker with and i'm not sure what to get. I originally wanted a raspberry pi but the processors are kinda crappy. Any ideas? I'd like to keep it under $150.

The Pi isn't too bad bit there are things missing.

With your budget, why not get a second hand laptop and a free linux distro.

Default Re: Mini Android PC

There are plenty of Android mini PCs available for less than $100. The Raspberry Pi is interesting for the price but a dual core or quad core mini PC with 1-2G of RAM will easily outperform it.

I have Raspberry Pi and an Android mini PC and the mini PC is much more refined and usable. The Pi only costs something like $35 while a mini PC starts at around $60 but I'd have to say I get much more use out of my mini PC.
