Um... Amazon has a bunch of nice fake arduinos that usually work well at a low price. Here's the ones I bought, and they worked out of the box great. https://www.amazon.com/ELEGOO-Arduino-ATmega328P-Without-Compatible/dp/B0713XK923/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1546217833&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=arduino+nano&psc=1
As far as I can see they are clones. I don't think it is fair to call them fakes. At least in my mind "fake" implies illegality or, at best, cheating. Making clone Arduinos is perfectly legal and respectable - the designs for the hardware are OpenSource....R
Buying from the Arduino store, at least buying one, helps pay for this forum and IDE improvements.
