After looking into the ARM platform in general, I had a quick look into the Raspberry PI platform.
The kits because quite expensive. But there is a model intended for schools etc, with very similar hardware backed into a keyboard.

After getting a Micro HDMI cable realizing my adapter was only Mini HDMI, I got it setup quite quickly.

It comes without any OS installed, but an easy way to copy the Linux of your choice to a SD card.

After a quick look at their native OS, I decided to install:

22.04.2 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish)

For 89 Euro you get quite interesting hardware, with a lot of options including WLAN and good connectivity in general.

Beside compiling some of my code on ARM, I first took a look into Nomad web on Chromium, which just works.

It's not very fast, but it works well.
I switched it back to the text based mode for now and installed a Docker server for the next adventures.

This will be probably one of the lab machines I am taking to DNUG in June.

I'm using a Pi400, which is a 4GB Pi in a keyboard case and as a kit much cheaper than the regular Pi. I paid 100€ before the Pi prices exploded, but you still get the Pi400 cheaper than the regular PI.

I use it mostly for

a) Pi-Hole to block ads on all devices in my home, including ads in smartphones games or in Freevee, the ad paid offer from Amazon. With Pi-Hole you get one add every 3hours in freevee instead of 2 ads every 10 minutes.

b) I am running an extern HDD with 4TB on the PI as a target for TimeMachine backups of my Macbook. Its not fast, but as the backips are taken silently in the background, performance doesn't reall matter.

I would love to run a litte Domino server natively on a PI, when we just had an ARM version. At Engage in Amsterdam a few weeks ago, Thomas Hampel asked if we would like to have Domino for ARM on a Pi, an most find the ideas appealing.
