Following the suggestions of Isaac, Greg and some details i've read
about BeagleBone Black, i've created a list with needed things that we
should spend from our donations to coadde continue his GRUB and another
bootloaders porting for ARMv7:

* BeagleBone Black Rev C - U$S 153.37 [0]

* Adafruit Bone Box (Enclosure for BeagleBone) - U$S 39.04 [1]

* HDMI to VGA cable - U$S 9 (coadde hasn't HDMI monitor) [2]

* 5V power supply with 2A - U$S 7 [3]

Buy BeagleBone in Uruguay is more cheaper than Argentina, however, if we
consider buy BeagleBone Black expensive yet, we could buy it at MCM
Electronics site [4] and shipping it to coadde.

It costs $49.99 and since it's under $50 USD, it's excluded from VAT and
other taxes in Uruguay, it just needs to be shipped with PS Form 6182
[5], however we should keep in mind that we could have a risk of it
getting stuck at Uruguayan customs.

I did it some time ago without problems in Uruguay because the sender
shipped it as gift, then there's a possibility do it, Argentinian way
it's impossible.

BTW, when we've made the purchase about it, we should print all purchase
invoices and send to Parabola to keep transparency.
