This board is a pretty far advanced piece of hardware. I'm used to pcDuino 2 boot process style so I miss the bios like configuration screen to configure keyboard, screen resolution and some other interesting options.
Since the Acadia comes without wifi connectivity, physical connection to your router or NAT must be configured to install updates, libraries and apps. It comes with 8GB of eMMC NAND flash which is the fastest non-volatile storage. I've put two SD cards class 10 U to get the maximum I/O Throughput. SATA port also available for a 2.5 inch HDD.
This is a beautiful piece of hardware.

Fonctionne a merveille. Mais pas encore testé en mode Arduino.
