Early reviews of #BeagleBoneBlack are very positive!

First evening’s impression of the #BeagleBoneBlack :
The B3 includes 2GB of built-in storage. I saw a youtube video that claimed that led to doing useful things in less time than with the Raspberry Pi, and I am convinced.
I plugged first the Ethernet and then the USB cable into my laptop, and the B3 booted up, my laptop mounted the USB mass storage device, and I was immediately presented with START.HTM
So, I was able to get started in about ten minutes.
In contrast, blinking an LED on my msp430 boards usually takes me two hours if I haven’t done it recently.
Outstanding B3 question: Can I use the four pin header (TP5,6,7,TP8) to charge LiPo batteries?
