Thanks Gaara (and happy Easter too ), i understood that that price was referred at battery interface addition, sorry
79$ is a bit high, i hope it can be a bit cheaper
Cheers

They are a business. They want to be paid the same as you or I would. I have no idea what the cost of assembly is, but I can guarantee you couldn't make the same hardware for that cheap. As far as that is concerned we are saving a lot of money.

Also, they need money to make new PI's in the future.

Well, maybe it is more pricier then average board--but think about it as--it will be really powerfull board. A17 series comes from powerfull line of CPUS and also Mali t760 mp4 is powerfull GPU. Maybe --even--with this board you will be covered for many years in advance.

I even looked at some reviews with RK3288 chip on Android boxes---and interesting was to see that there was installed on CPU not only Cooler--but also little FAN. So looks like chip is really powerfull if it has even little fan.

I whas thinking, Why intel? Maybe a high-end model with an AMD cpu? Generally cheaper, and more price per performance rating. Only one problem, AMD uses more power and produces more heat.

That is the problem. Embedded systems are designed to use little power, and while AMD is awesome when it comes to cheaper parts and better graphics, for embedded systems, that kind of  power consumption is not good. But there are AMD processors designed for embedded use, it's gonna cost you though. There's a dev board based on that APU called the gizmo 2

Well idea to use x-86/64 architecture in dev board looks very interesting.
THere are already some attempts to make this idea alive:
http://www.cnx-software.com/2015 ... s-mini-pc-unboxing/

http://www.cnx-software.com/2014 ... ells-for-125-promo/

So essentially PC has Intel Atom cpu and can run windows and Android.

Well to run Android on Intel or AMd CPU sounds kind of like cool---because --x86 CPUs have enough power to make Android run smoothly.

But if we will start to talk about Linux to run on an embedded x86 CPU--then we have to think about. Because for ARM--there are proper versions of Linux--I mean--it is created with thought that it will run on ARM, but if to talk about Linux for x86--then probably there wont be created mobile version of Linux--but just used DEsktop version of Linux. And DEsktop version of Linux-- likes power of DEsktop x86 CPUs.
So from one point of view--for ANdroid usage of x86 looks intersting--but for Linux---is kind of like open...

THere are CPUS for embedded systems from Intel--which are Atoms CPUS---I do not know if they are powerfull enough--but consumpt not many energy--is for sure, Also AMD has some CPUs:
For tbalet CPUs from AMD-- http://www.amd.com/en-gb/product ... -tablet/tablet-apu#

Embedded solutions from AMD: http://www.amd.com/en-gb/products/embedded

Well for me is interesting to know what exactly can offer AMD and how good it is in power consumption relation and in price relation. BUt yes--AMD looks interesting ot me...
