FAQ

Question Answer Reason
I want more RAM and a faster CPU . Too expensive. 35 $ , remember , more important : takes too much time to design.
Will it run Windows (8) ? No. Technical limitations , money and time.
Where can I add RAM ? Nowhere. It's impossible. The RAM is in the main chip. And there is no support for adding DIMM Slots. You may use swap .
Why is there no PCI and eSATA ? Cost. Nearly no ARM chips have PCI , either. Products with eSATA exist - they can cost 100 $ upwards.
I want a model C with extra features . There are only 2 rules.
# Do not talk about Model C. # Don't forget Rule 1.
Ever heard of Osborne Effect  ? . Also : takes time to design , schools are poor and don't want more.
