LattePanda - Real x86 credit card sized PC

Well, that's a real bummer. If I shall be honest, I actually didn't expect anything else. I checked the official discussion on LattePanda and other places. The special mainline kernel doesn't support these features and other Linux distributions with other kernels don't support it either. It's a really sad incident. A x86 CPU and hardware but Linux in 2017 doesn't support it fully.

Now I'm wondering. You are using a half working LattePanda due to software limits just for Kodi. For that purpose it is quite expensive. Wouldn't it be cheaper and better to use one of these Chinese boxes? They come with either x86 hardware that is exactly like the Version 1 of the LattePanda. On the other hand there are also cheap and really awesome Android solutions with Amlogic CPUs that support everything you throw at it like H265 4K 60FPS and etc.

Anyway. That would be going off topic. So I'll stop here.

I know that I can buy and android box and use for kodi but with lattepanda it works better. I tried the same program (kodi) with Windows and I had some lag problems, specially with 1080p videos. Until this moment I haven't tried 4K on Linux version. I will stay as I am with my lattepanda just like it is now, waiting for the complete support of Linux kernel of someone that can patch it because I prefer lan over Wi-Fi but for now it is the only thing that can be done with Linux Ubuntu. Sad but true
Thanks and Hostigation for VPS 18

I think this is a really good invention, considering how everything is getting portable and easier to be obtained. I think it would be better if their increase the RAM capacity and increase the storage size (may not be an issue for all users though). They should release a x64 version in the near future!

Is the Intel Atom X5-Z8350 supported by Android 7? I saw everywhere TV boxes, tablets only with Android 5.1.
Absolutely amazing, but I'm surprised that they've chosen to have Windows 10 pre-installed rather than Linux.

Android x86 runs on any normal PC hardware including the LattePanda. WiFi and BT might be tricky to get them to work though because of how they're mounted on the system (in BIOS it can be reconfigured).
We are the sum of our memories. Erasing the memories edged in oneself is the same as loosing oneself.
Look very interesting. I hope this can be used as RaspberryPI alternative.
If I have some project I will add this to my decision.
