A First Look at Asus Tinker Board

Asus is taking on the Raspberry Pi with its own single-board computer that offers 4K video playback and 24-bit audio support. The "Asus 90MB0QY1-M0EAY0 Tinker Board," or "Tinker Board", has better hardware specifications compared with Raspberry Pi 3.
The new board was released last month but only available in UK and Taiwan initially. Shipment cost is much higher than the board if I were to purchase from UK sellers. Major Taiwan online marketplace only accept credit card from local bank and domestic shipment.

I just found out that this board also available last week at However, the shipment cost is very high from US to Malaysia. I was not able to find any sellers from Malaysia and Singapore.
However, I was able to get this board from a seller in Taiwan through facebook. Got the board last week!
