How much for a 1 GHz computer

Note that the new board doesn't have an Ethernet.

The Raspberry Pi comes in various versions.

The Pi 2 has  a 4 core ARM v7, 900 MHz, 1 GB of ram, micro SD, Ethernet, and 
4 USB slots.  This is the only version I would consider buying today if the 
goal is hacking with ntpsec.  It runs waf configure and build in 2-3 minutes. 
 (That's without asciidoc.)

There is no TOY/RTC clock.

I use it headless so I haven't paid much attention to the graphics.  You 
probably need console access to get started.  I have an HDMI to VGA adapter 
and ??? to USB for the keyboard/mouse.

The main OS is Rasbian, derived from Debian.

I think it also runs NetBSD and FreeBSD, but I haven't tried them yet.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
