    Quite pricey compared to RaspPi ripoffs from China. And with way less gimmicks. What's the advantage of this thing?

    Well it's got built in inputs/sensors and primitive display for a start. They look like quite neat little things to be fair, nice little projects for the kids.

    I'd be interested in tinkering with one, but not at minimum order quantities, hopefully the individual resellers don't ruin it.
