Dreamplug solution vs. Arduino

Postby d0ugparker » February 7th, 2011, 12:52 pm

Dreamplug's new $150 solution:

but is it worth the money--should I put my time and energy into an Arduino solution instead?

I'm just looking for comments.

TIA

Well...this is absolutely nothing like an Arduino, this is a full computer in a very small form-factor. It's like asking if you should buy a laptop or an Arduino.

If you want to work on electronics projects, then obviously you would want an Arduino. If you wanted to do something like a light-weight server for your local network, you would get the DeamPlug (or one of the other very similar products based on the Marvell processor).
