I already googled bit around but didn't find something that really fits my expectations... My budget is around $100 and my requirements would be

  • USB 3.0 Port(s)
  • Gigabit Ethernet (min)
  • SSD and / or microSD slot
  • at least 1 GB RAM

and would be mainly used for

  • Media Server / LMS
  • Owncloud
  • Internal Website

Do you know any single-board computers that would fit these requirements?

I'm confused why the most recent versions of Raspberry Pi and similars only have 512 MB of RAM. Is that really enough??

    Raspberry Pi 3 has 1 GB of RAM.

1 Answer 1


Just one example: The Orange Pi Plus

It has -

  • Gigabit ethernet
  • 2 GB RAM
  • SATA 2.0 interface
  • TF card slot

It doesn't have USB 3.0

What can I do with Orange Pi Plus2?


A computer

A wireless server


Music and sounds

HD video

A speaker



Pretty much anything else, because Orange Pi Plus2 is open source

Who’s it for?

Orange Pi Plus2 is for anyone who wants to start creating with technology – not just consuming it. It's a simple, fun, useful tool that you can use to start taking control of the world around you.

  • I was able to find BananaPi, but unable to find OrangePi. Thank you so much, fits my needs
