Basically a motherboard from a tablet! Still, seems very cheap considering the number of components on the board.

no ethernet, no gpio
Just a mainboard of a tablet, nothing special, seems to have a lot of components...
The Olimex A13 or later with the A10 will be a much better candidate.

Crappy. I don't even see a SATA port (A10 has builtin SATA controller).

I'm hoping somebody will make a proper breakout board for the A10, but so far it hasn't happened.
