Mele has a page on its low cost Windows computer $49 plus cost of Ram and storage.
There appears to be delays in mass manufacture.
Perhaps getting deliveries of Intel processor Z3735F ??

I wonder if Puppy linux could run on this??

May be a bit of quality concerns at $50!

Puppy could no doubt run on it.

Are you sure it's plus ram and storage? The trend these days is for those to be soldered in (well sometimes the eMMC is removeable, but eMMC drives are slooowwww). This one has the notable feature of a "quad cord" processor.

If you can actually add like 4GB of RAM, there could be value. Skip the eMMC, load Puppy from RAM, choose a low-resource pup and it should be nice.

Personally I like the ECS Liva PC design. Zotac has a nicer-looking wee box, but while Zotac has known thermal design issues, ECS throws a nice quality heat sink on top. I've no doubt you could use it for years as a low-spec, very use-flexible PC.

I'd love to have a mini-PC [Raspberry Pi wasn't fast/powerful enough] that would run a Puppy, work with a wireless keyboard and mouse,and use my Sony Bravia TV as a display, with large text on screen, and good quality images, and stream from the web by connecting to my router using Powerline Adapters.

Anything suitable out there?

Now, that is an interesting Puppy PC, except for the "Intel HD Graphic".

Hope it does not come with "UEFI secure boot" and Win$. (I guess it doesn't...)

My mele is stuck in a loading loop ( Android ) and my sdcards are misplaced.

Zotac is already selling a barebones computer in Canada.

Note that there is no operating system , no DDR memory, no storage memory,
no wifi or bluetooth so mele is a better deal.

Something to think about. NewEgg has this for $110 with free shipping right now. Thanks, Rob
