    I'm wanting to start a new project for a while and found most of the things i want to implement can be done on a PC easy. So i was thinking of making a little LINUX based board or something..

    I remember a board already like the one i plan on doing but forgot the name... Its a Blue PCB with a LCD on it. I think it ran linux but not sure.

    It was called BLUE something? Does anyone know what im talking about?

    In any case can someone point me to a LINUX/ARM board... I'm trying to find something that is not BGA like the A13... this would drop PCB development cost down by so much :)

    Any links to similar information would be great as well.

    Thanks :)

    Look at Raspberry Pie or Beagle Bone Black.

    I have a Raspberry PI and BeagleBoard XM but they are too bulky... i need something like a SBC (single board computer) but with no Peripherals ... just CPU/RAM/FLASH on it and broken out pins for my use.
