Saw this vid, and compared to the PI4 "Desktop" kit, the Atomic Pi seems better. There are some caveats here, like GPIO only power, and a heat-sink (a copper H/S would be smaller and lower) that make the unit rather bulky. But Atomic Pi is much more adaptable to Puppy... its x86.

At $120 the desktop PI4 is priced just under my eeePC 900a at $149. But I got a 9" LCD monitor included. And really... keyboard, power, case, and mouse for $65? (4Gb PI4 is $55) Well thats a bit rich. And in fairness, ditto for the Atomic Pi, but parting out acc's might be a bit less. Its the monitor chosen that brings the choice to a head. The PI seems to have cheaper, direct-connect monitors: the x86 Atomic Pi has the usual framed monitors w/ stand that boosts price.

Small monitors can be found at the usual "big 3" O/L stores.
I would think anything of good quality is $80-100 priced.

Regards
