BananapiM7 install Armbian 24.5.1 or Debian 12 Cinnamon?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm looking to buy an ARM SBC with:

  1. Bluetooth
  2. Connection for monitor x3
  3. CPU: x86 AMD
  4. Graphics integrated
  5. LAN x2
  6. Mobo: I'm unsure on mini pc mobos, but needed?
  7. Power
  8. Ram: 16-32GB preferred
  9. Storage: small is fine 32GB-256GB, nothing large like 1TB
  10. USB for mouse
  11. USB for spare
  12. Wi-Fi for hotspot


I usually use Raspberry Pi 5, however the Bananapi-M7 appears to have dual port, although I haven't confirmed the other requirements I need.


The question is which OS do I download please? as per https://www.armbian.com/bananapi-m7/

1st option (Noble Gnome) with full featured desktop, where (almost) all features works / are enabled. Second is for IOT / server and others are ... there is some small info why they are. If you don't know why, skip / ignore them.
