It is not just the great $15 price, the Orange Pi PC has small size, low power consumption and direct USB ports.

There is NOTHING like it in the Orange Pi range or anywhere else ...

Please INCREASE the price and make it available again!

I am willing to pay MORE and order MANY MORE ...

This is truly unbelievable, the OrangePi PC has really started to become a pretty great board (software wise).  I sure hope they bring them back at the $15 price point, its hard to justify the new boards with such little ram.

Yes it's the question!

Why buy a one (1 usb host,  512Ram) instead PC with 3 usb host, 1G ram for 5 dollards more?
I think they fail with this OP one, to be on the same market segment of raspberry pi zero (dev board for high integration and soldering sub part), why don't make a same board with H3 but without connector (USB, RJ45, audio), just pads for soldering. The price can be lower and OP PC won't be on the same market. Name proposition : OP One light!

Hopefully some vendors have for the moment OP PC for 22$

Personally, I wish one or another manufacturer stepped up and stopped trying to emulate Raspberry Pi; stop putting USB-ports and stuff behind an internal USB-hub because you're just hurting their bandwidth with that, let users use external hubs if they feel there ain't enough ports, and stop with the stupidity with a 40-pin GPIO-header when e.g. the H3 has a shitload more pins to offer -- route out all the available pins on the board, even if your product won't any longer be "Raspberry Pi - compatible!"

Many courier companies are no longer receiving delivery of goods, because the Chinese new year has arrived.
