[ First comments ]

The first opinions were not long in coming. On the price, as always very well. The basic version with 1 Gb is kept at $35. The community disagree on change connector for hdmi video output, which is different now. Good choice the Cortex-A72 processor. Of course, people are dreaming about the performance for N64 emulation or Windows, xD. LibreELEC has a new release with initial support, 9.2 Alpha 1. What do you think? I read you in the comments.
