We test four of the leading Single Board Computers to see which is the best one: Raspberry Pi 2 vs ODROID C1 vs HummingBoard vs MIPS Creator CI20.
If you liked the Raspberry Pi 1, then you will love the Pi 2. The performance jump is excellent, and the extra memory really helps the desktop performance.
