Board recommendation

Post by bakechad »

New to DietPi, but not to SBC. Mostly been using RPIs and one old Beaglebone.

Looking to setup a local DNS/DHCP server. I was originally going to go with a Pi, but after looking at all the boards DietPi supports, I figured I should look at something with gigabit network speeds.

Any thoughts or opinions? Maybe a Pine A64+?

Thanks

Odroid C2 best value for money and what with its high specs it can be used for things other than what you intend.

They are however out of stock but should be available mid March according to the hardkernel website.
