Oh dear. That's pretty amazing. The only microcontroller on ARM that comes
close in price, that I know, of, is the mcHack, and this has a GPU built

... The only way this could get better is if intel takes note and drops the
price of its x86 embedded line. I was pretty happy with the Pi2 -- this is
an amazing deal for anyone making a project around the pi.
