Main Program

An $85 PC - Emily Clarke and Larry Gross

You can assemble an $85 PC using four components purchased from Amazon. It includes all the necessary software. The PC uses your TV for a monitor or you can use one of your old monitors. The PC has Wi-Fi, Ethernet, four USB 3.0 ports and a keyboard and mouse. While this PC isn’t for everyone, it can competently accomplish the things most people want. It can access the internet, handle email, edit photos, prepare spreadsheets and do word processing. It is much more capable than a $200 Chromebook.


The PC uses a Raspberry PI processor and a LINUX operating system that looks and feels similar to Windows. It stores files locally on a thumb drive or USB drive or an included SD card. The presentation will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this low cost PC, show how to assemble one and demonstrate it. A printed list of components and Amazon part numbers will be provided and we will schedule a group session where all individuals that buy the components can assemble them and learn how to use the PC.
