Only $35, 8.8 cm long x 3.5 cm wide x 1.2 cm high, it plays high def videos, and it runs Linux

just plug in a keyboard and a hdmi cable to any high def tv, and you're good to go.

I don't really need another computer, but I'm tempted to pick one of these up just to play with.

1. I need this like I need a hole in the head, so I ordered 2.

I got 6 computers here at the house that I use. I've got 12 more I'm trying to sell on craigslist and got enough parts to build at least 6 more.
Yeah, I really need this.

5. If only mythtv could run on them.

I was reading last night that they've got ubuntu running on the mk808, so it may eventually be possible.

7. Awesome Toy

Netflix does work on it. So does Hulu and Crackle and a whole host of other media players. The upside is it runs the movies in HD and for something so small it is surprising. Once you put a usb hub on it it will also run an external hard drive up to 5 terebyts which is amazing. Once I started playing with my mk 808 I was hooked. I just love this thing.
