CHIP Computer At $9

Check Out This Surprisingly Powerful Computer That Costs Less Than $10

At just $9, every kid could have one.

Ethan Wolff-Mann | January 22, 2016

It’s taken for granted that everyone has a computer. But it’s not true. Computers may be all but essential to living in the 21st century, yet even a budget Chromebook for $300 can be prohibitive—especially for kids.
Today, however, a subset of DIY bare-bones computers have emerged that cost less than a pizza, like the CHIP.
For a measly $9, the tiny computer (its marketing materials usually show it dwarfed by a banana) is stripped down to an extreme. It doesn’t come with a mouse, display, keyboard, or even a cover—it’s just an exposed circuit board. But it does have Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and a USB port. Pre-orders of the CHIP will be delivered by June 2016.
