The most bang for your buck with embedded computing! This is probably the most impressive single board computers (SBC's) that we've experienced for the price. This is similar to the Up Board and LattePanda, but more affordable.

Because this board is running Microsoft Windows, it can also run ARC directly. There is an audio jack for speakers and an HDMI for video.

Maybe a stupid question but these boards will require a dedicated Windows 10 license, correct. I think those are about $60 so this needs to be considered.

Theoretically you don’t actually have to register your copy of windows.  It will still work.   You could always buy an oem licence on eBay.  Maybe $5

What Nink says. DJ has mentioned this before. I think he said everything in Windows 10 should work except being able to customize your desktop.

No windows license needed. Just install windows and there’s a little message in the corner that says unregistered at all times. 

I don’t register windows on my sbc’s

Thx Heatsink is $12 CAD + 10 shipping on Ali Express (for a hunk of metal).   I ordered a Rock Pi X and Heatsink from Seeed $103 US including shipping (~$135 CAD I guess after conversion fees etc) lets see how much I get hit up for customs, taxes, courier transaction fees and other stuff.

They need a North American distributor - even robot shop would be a good start for them

Another month gone by and still they have not shipped, just says processing. They showed they were in stock  when I ordered.  At this point I can not recommend these guys.  No information, no updates, nothing.

Weird! I ordered one on Jan 12th, it took a week to process and another week to ship and receive it, but yeah I got mine eventually. I ordered from Seeed.

*Edit: I also got hit for an extra $26 CAD in import fees

Ouch....that really sux @Nink. I noticed that they just got the Rock Pi X heatsink back in stock. Maybe they ran out and failed to tell you until the next stock came in.

Perhaps I did order one as well.  Lugging the NUC around on a robot is becoming a pain 19 volts requires two 3S LIPOs in series and I have already killed a couple by over discharging them.  Hopefully it all works out in the end.

NUC? Is this secret code for something between you guys? I hate acronyms.

We use the NUC at my job. Its  a neat lil computer.:) ,
