Nevertheless it is a great start and I wish Adapteva the best. My suggestion is that if you are buying one of these then also get:
1) Be a developer who is comfortable with hardware and software and have a regular Linux box around. Ubuntu is nice but any Linux would do.
2) Have at least one micro-sd card of 16 or better 32 gig size along with reader/writer. It must be *micro* not regular SD!
3) Have a powered USB hub
4) Have a micro-usb to USB adaptor
5) Have a micro-hdmi to regular hdmi adaptor and a monitor able to display it.
6) Have a serial RS232 to USB cable for debugging. Hopefully you won't need it but it is cheap and might as well have it.
You might want to get a fan also but the newer ones with large heatsink will do OK without a fan. I'd still get the fan to be safe.
If you get in trouble they got a great forum that will help you fix the problems but you have to be willing to work at it. This is not some out of the box product. You need to be willing to roll up your sleeves and dig in there. I spent 3 days before it booted properly for me. The people on their forum are very nice (I am there :-) and will help you get it working so have no fear.
Very easy to use as a regular linux platform. It really shines when you engage the Epiphany III 16-core chip to do image edge detection, or face recognition, or other advanced computational intense algorithms. SuperComputing for the masses (or just me!).
Note: I own two Parallels and six Raspberry Pi s.
One other important thing to note is that even though they say you can run the board with just the heat sink, my monitoring of the chip temperatures showed the board quicky overheats, even when mounted vertically, as recommended. This computer requires, IMO, a case with a fan. Certainly, a fan is required if you want to enclose the boards or run more than one in a cluster.
I am extremely happy with these computers, and I do recommend them. They really aren't for beginners, though. I would suggest you only buy these if you have excellent UNIX and system administration skills.
