It'll cost you R215 for this fully capable quad-core computer

The PINE64 – a 64-bit quad-core single-board computer – was unveiled recently, and will go on sale for $15.

The PINE64 can run Linux, 64-bit Android 5.1.1, and other software, and has 4K HDMI output capabilites.

The computer is the brainchild of TL Lim and Johnson Jeng, who said they set out to create a simple computer as affordable as two double Big Mac combo meals.

“By creating the world’s first affordable 64-bit single-board supercomputer, we’ve enabled your dreams to build the next invention,” the company said.

The PINE64 can be purchased with the latest Android software installed, or you can upload the latest version of Linux.

“Out of the box, with Android Lollipop 5.1 version installed, you immediately get access to over 1.6 million apps on the Google Play market, downloadable in a few clicks.”

There are two versions of the PINE64, priced at $15 and $19 respectively. Both will go on sale in December.
