What is Hackboard?
Hackboard™ is a powerful, new computer designed from the ground up to be one of the most affordable Windows-based and Intel-powered computers ever introduced. Hackboard is perfect for families at home or on the road, for children in or out of school, for work-from-home professionals. Because Hackboard is a single board computer that works with a variety of add-ons, accessories and kits, it is also an excellent choice for makers, tinkerers and hobbyists in their workshops.
Hackboard is a full-function, industry standard computer that comes preloaded with Microsoft Windows 10 Pro or Debian Linux,, a up to 2.8 GHz, 64-bit, dual-core Intel N4020 Celeron processor, 4 or 8 gigabytes of RAM, 64, 128, 256 or 512 gigabytes of storage.Using both M.2 slots, storage is expandable up to 4 terabytes. It has enough memory and connectivity options for a wide variety of computing projects, from creating Word documents or Google docs to streaming YouTube videos.
Because the products use industry standard technology, including Intel processors and Microsoft Windows software, Hackboard is ideal for in-class education, as well as students working remotely. Teachers can share Google Classroom documents, video lessons and popular student management software applications.
With its GPIO connectors and open architecture, Hackboard can also manage IoT devices, smart home technologies and a nearly unlimited number of maker projects. With its HDMI connectivity, it can also act as a media center for your home entertainment system, integrating easily with your other home audio visual and game devices, allowing you to easily switch from watching TV to using your Hackboard as a full-function, big screen computer bringing the full power of the Internet and computing to your TV.
Because it combines computing power and an industry standard platform with a remarkably low price, Hackboard is well-positioned to solve a long-standing societal problem – the Digital Divide. It’s estimated that nearly half of all households around the world do not yet have a computer. Priced at only $174.95 for the Linux version and $199.95 for the Windows 10 Pro version, the Hackboard is an ideal platform for helping eliminate the Digital Divide. Working with school districts and government organizations, the company hopes to be able to provide computers to users who never had the opportunity to own a computer before.
