I saw reference to the Color Maximite single board computer in Circuit Cellar Magazine and am impressed enough to share it here.  Like desktop computers of old, it has a Basic interpreter built in, along with monitor and keyboard support and an SD card " floppy drive."  The unique feature is that it supports ubiquitous Arduino shields along with I2C, SPI and a number of port pins.  Not bad for $50..  Check out Circuit Gizmos web page for some interesting products.  The description below is from their website.

Majenko, have you considered writing a article about RetroBSD here, and maybe Hack-a-Day ?

One day, when I convert my old Amiga 500 to run RetroBSD, I will...
