The Orange Pi Zero Single-Board Computer Ships For $6.99

At $6.99, a new Raspberry Pi competitor called Orange Pi Zero costs less than some sandwiches in New York City.

The Orange Pi Zero can be used to make electronics or robots, or it can fill in as a file or media server. Such developer boards are also used to create and test industrial devices.

The computer is a competitor to the minuscule Raspberry Pi Zero, a stripped down version of Raspberry Pi that sells for $5. But Orange Pi Zero has better hardware with a faster processor and Wi-Fi capabilities.

Don't expect the tiny Orange Pi Zero to deliver booming performance or be a full-fledged PC replacement. If you're looking for a powerful board computer, consider buying the $35 Raspberry Pi 3 or $15 Pine64 board.
