Just received an e-mail from Fry's Electronics with this Hyundai Protocol X8 Intel Atom 8" 2-in-1 PC With 2GB Memory, 32GB Storage, Windows 10 $179.00 - $120 (promo code; 9029888) = $59. Please don't let the $120 promotional discount fool you mainly because Amazon's current price is around $90. Regardless, it looks like it is a nice 64-bit 8" tablet with 2/32 GB RAM/eMMC storage, i.e. Micro SD Slot. I was wondering if this item can be hacked to run ARMbian Linux, particularly off an external storage. I was thinking to grab it to run ARMbian and use it as an eBook reader and/or among other things, i.e. streaming video (using kodi).
I had a similar thought. Two big downsides! I have yet to find a way to boot an external drive: usb SD card, USB DVD/CD, micro SD in slot. I'm going to research if I can boot from the UEFI shell.

The second being, there is only one USB port. It is either USB device or Charging Port, never bother. I believe the hardware doesn't support it.

I got mine for $75 and had to return it 3 or 4 times. It came with a USB keyboard, but that failed, too ... Hyundai sent me a new one.

WiFi and Bluetooth work fine. It's just like any windows computer, except you can't do much with it.
Atom is X86,...You can run Debian for X86. Armbian is for Arm CPU
the processor is an "Intel Atom 3735F Quad Core Processor"

lots of information around how to do this from the sdcard slot etc

I might be out of my league here, but Linux Mint Debian LMDE looks like something I might try.
