SolidRun's HummingBoard Mini PC!
The HummingBoard is available in three different versions which are priced from $45 rising to $100 and are equipped with faster processors than that of the Raspberry Pi mini PC.
The lower-end $45 HummingBoard mini PC is equipped with a Freescale i.MX6 Solo ARM Cortex-A9 processor, with Vivante GC880 graphics and supported by 512MB of RAM. With connections for 10/100 Ethernet, HDMI and SPDIF ports, GPIO headers, 2 x USB 2.0 ports and a handy microSD card slot for further expansion.
The $75 HummingBoard-i2 is fitted with a dual-core i.MX6 Dual processor supported by 1GB of RAM. While the top of the range $100 HummingBoard-i2eX version equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet connection as well as GC2000 graphics. Together with two extra USB 2.0 ports, a microphone input, an mSATA II connector, PCI Express connector, and IR port.
All three HummingBoard mini PCs or capable of running Android and various other Linux operating systems such as Ubuntu, the Liliputing website explains :
And unlike the Raspberry Pi, the HummingBoard isn’t quite a single-board computer: the processor and memory live on a small board that attaches to the credit card-sized input and output board, which could theoretically allow you to upgrade to a more powerful processor in the future.”

Where Are the Hardest Places to Live in the US

The Upshot came to this conclusion by looking at six data points for each county in the United States: education (percentage of residents with at least a bachelor’s degree), median household income, unemployment rate, disability rate, life expectancy and obesity. We then averaged each county’s relative rank in these categories to create an overall ranking.
"Here are some specific comparisons: Only 7.4 percent of Clay County residents have at least a bachelor’s degree, while 63.2 percent do in Los Alamos. The median household income in Los Alamos County is $106,426, almost five times what the median Clay County household earns. In Clay County, 12.7 percent of residents are unemployed, and 11.7 percent are on disability; the corresponding figures in Los Alamos County are 3.5 percent and 0.3 percent. Los Alamos County’s obesity rate is 22.8 percent, while Clay County’s is 45.5 percent. And Los Alamos County residents live 11 years longer, on average — 82.4 years vs. 71.4 years in Clay County."
