Can you guys have a look at it and suggest me if its a okaish choice.
Is there anything else that you can suggest me under the same range.
One more question I had was, if I buy this board Can I connect it to
my Laptop's LCD as I cannot afford anything over and above the above
price range. Suggestions are welcome.
It really depends on the layer you want to work at. If you're fine to work on actual
board bringup, any armv7 board will be helpful. There are lists for embedded devices
However, plase double check that the cpu is armv7 based. ARM11 (like the raspberry pi) is
too old for our hardfp distro.
However, if you're interested in working on higher layers of the stack, like yast or
gnome or some other user space aplication, you are better off using a board that is
well-known to work. Currently that includes the Beagleboard xM and the Pandaboard.
I don't know if thd beaglebone works. It might, but I haven't tried it and I
don't think anyone else has. However, IIUC it doesn't have a graphical interface
anyway, so your use case of attaching it to your monitor won't work.
