Dunno why this took so long to dawn on me, but here we have 1.2GHz, quad core, 64-bit, computer with wifi, bluetooth, multiple USB ports, and ethernet.

So is every phone. The fact that it's $35 is the impressive part.

Yeah i know. But most phones have barely a single micro-USB port.

You can get passively cooled netbooks with an Intel chip now. Mine's a Celeron N2840. Runs okay for everyday use.

The new macbook is passively cooled.

It's also thermally throttled heavily.

You can get Intel-based passively cooled computers with those features from Compulab. They cost a lot more than $35, though.
