Would it be possible to have a pine C-64 mini arm computer project board.
#1
I like the idea of the pine book pro but was looking for something a bit different. I though it could be called computer 64 abbreviated to C-64 Smile . Anyways the concept would be similar to the pinebook pro but rather a mini arm computer for use with linix or BSD though I am thinking alot of Arch Arm Linux using the Arch Packman to native arm compile tarballs. Now as for the project aspect of the board would be to use for open source projects for things such as making a wifi router or a Media server or Media TV box etc with the supportive hardware to do so. That would require things such as multi connect for wifi board and ethernet switches. Also hard drive supports etc. The basis of the idea is that native arm programs run very well on Arm hardware but suck at running X86 on arm. With Arch the packages could be compiled for arm.

If I understand you like to have a "package" around a SBC? Something like a Intel NUC casing. I would like to have a Router/NAS/docker server like box too. I'm planning to play with OMV on my Roshambo RockPro64 system, but this is of course not a stow away sever box.

The question is what performance is needed / feasible. A light A64 system is nice and eficient, but the most powerful RockPro64 is "only" 4GB RAM which is not enough for FreeNAS for example. A case that can directly connect a HDD (M2?) would be nice, like the PinebookPro can.
