The project aims to raise $75,000, and since it has started fairly well I assume they’ll achieve and surpass their goal. A $69 pledge should get you the 1GB RAM/16GB storage version, while the 2GB/32GB version requires $89 (standard pledge). Shipping is not included, and adds $15 to the US, and $25 to the rest of the world. Delivery is planned for September 2016. More details may be listed on Azpen Hybrx A1160 product page.
