Hey all - wondering if anyone knew of a real cheap (less than $80) box I can throw linux on. I do not need anything heavy whatsoever, I want to run a small version of Linux and a couple utilities.

BTW - no to Raspberry Pi Since it will not run the utility I want. =)

Thanks!

Hi there
I plan on getting hold of one of these which I found while researching stuff for the Raspberry PI which I may never get hold of waiting waiting waiting.........
The MK802 supposedly will boot any Standard Linux OS - I will be running one of the PuppyLinux Flavours:

Go have a look see what you think, there is a 512ram one as well for around $60 bucks.

Re the Raspberry there is going to be a specific Puppy Linux dedicated to this so it may or may not end up amazing.

There is also this reviews and info for the CX-01 around $53
