Long live Allegro!

It's a $9 computer with 1 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM, and 4 GB storage.

I wonder if they chose to demo Alex 4 specifically because it wasn't too demanding on the CPU. If this thing could run other Allegro games, somebody please put a bare bones window manager on one and make it an Allegro Boy.

Looks like an old pip boy ^^

Kewl! What's a Pocket Chip? ;D First I heard of it. But still kewl.

Pocket Chip is an addon to Chip, a $9 computer. Would have been the first, but before everyone who backed Chip got theirs, Raspberry PI released a $5 computer!

I guess I'll hold out till they release a -$5 computer.
