it’s just me that’s going to be using whatever it is, i plan to host a Nextcloud, probably a Matrix server using Synapse, a website, and email. i have an Ethernet cable ready to go, but i’m using someone else’s internet at the moment (with their knowledge and approval).

i’ve been looking at Pine64 SBCs, but i’m open to anything as long as it’s not a Raspberry Pi

    Check out the TinyMiniMicro series from servethehome

    • Do not buy something that uses ARM. Things like TrurNAS or Proxmox simply don’t run there. You’ll also run into problems with Docker images being available only for x86
    • don’t buy a Raspberry-like computer. Yes, they draw low power, but for the same price you could get a TinyMiniMicro-esque device which is upgradeable (e.g. add a 10gbit NIC) and an order of magnitude faster

      where can i find a TinyMiniMicro? i’ve been looking all over for one and can’t seem to find any

        Are you using the search term tinyminincro? Because that’s just the name of the series from servethehome that doesn’t mean much outside thag. Try Lenovo m720q, Lenovo m920q, Hp elitedesk, hp prodesk, dell optiplex

        Do note that devices come in same names but with different generations of the device (better CPU etc.). Devices with 6th gen CPU are cheaper, but 8th gen Intel start to have 6 cores instead of 4 (in 6th gen)

        Are you browsing ebay or local craigslist-type sites? May be possible they’re not as popular in your country? I’ve found plenty in Poland
