Hackboard has introduced powerful, affordable Personal Computer Kits with 4G or 5G connectivity, perfect for makers, students, the classroom, work-from-home professionals and anyone looking to create innovative IoT projects.
Today more than ever, both students and professionals need access to affordable, high-quality, versatile computers with outstanding connectivity. Work-from-home professionals may have a computer for work, but need an additional system in the home for both their work and in-home students. IoT designers and makers can take advantage of the power of x86 processors, Windows or Linux software, high-speed connectivity and large amounts of storage to design and create a nearly unlimited number of IoT devices and maker projects. With 4G or 5G connectivity and an affordable price, the Hackboard Personal Computer Kits are designed to meet these needs.
The Hackboard Computer Kits include two initial configurations – the Hackboard 2 Starter Kit and Hackboard 2 Complete Kit.
