I'm looking for an ARM powered device (Think RaspberyPi, BeagleBoard, O-Droid, etc) that I can use as a replacement to a normal desktop PC. In an effort to reduce my energy consumption as I will eventually be rockin' home solar power in the next year or two I'm interested in seeking alternative and smarter computing options in the home. My workstation PC, although it will still be needed for some tasks is going to be mostly replaced by my laptop that obviously uses significantly less power and offers enough resources to get done what it is that I need to get done. But after work is done, and it's time to just browse the web/check email/whatever I can switch over to a small ARM device that will be adequate enough for normal browsing, Skype use, checking email, etc. Basically, what I am looking for is something that will let me do the following, without issue or headache or too much cursing: Run Debian / XFCE Firefox/IceWeasel Thunderbird/IceDove Skype Terminator with multiple terminals open. See? Nothing major... though resources to spare for when I have all running at once with multiple tabs open and multitasking is a must. I'm looking at the ODROID-XU3 and it's pretty damn impressive as far as specs go. (2X) Quadcore CPUs, 2GB RAM, USB3, etc. Seems like it'd be up for the task, and at $179 it won't break the bank but it's on the north end of what I'd want to spend... What would you recommend for an ARM device capable of replacing a desktop? The RPI (Model B, and new 1Gb Model) I have will be used for other things, and using the RPI2 as a desktop client 'works' but not as well as I'd like. I'd like something a bit more powerful. Suggestions?
