Has anyone got a Banana Pi/Banana Pro Mini PC and where did you get it from? THanks.

I don't have one, but it looks like they are easily obtainable from Ali Express for between $55-$65 USD, with free shipping to NZ. The Banana Pros I looked at come with heat sinks.

Why don't you try pcduino? That is much better than banana. pcduino3B has lots of function and you can play linux or android on it.

I haven't got one, but I've used GPIO before for other stuff and they seemed good.

In the end I payed it safe and got my self a Raspberry Pi 2. I still liked the Banana Pi product because it has integrated SATA and in-built IR.
