Sorry that I don’t have an Nvidia Jetson TK1 board to give away…, but if you were interesting in getting one the best ARM Linux boards available today, and found the $192 price tag a little too high, Make announced a ~50% discount offer to get the board for $99 on Nvidia store using MAKEJTK1 coupon.

You’ll need to add shipping bringing the total to $107.80 in the US, but one of the downsides is that it’s currently on backorder, so you may have to be patient. The other downside is Nvidia will only ship to the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and some other small islands, so if you don’t happen to live there you are out of luck unless you use forwarder such as Shipito or MyUS.com. You’ll have to pay the forwarder and possibly custom duties, but this would probably still be cheaper than buying from a local site at full price.
