This article is very silly. They position this new single-board computer against the Raspberry Pi, because it's also a single board, and say that this computer is "a little bigger" than the Pi.
Then at the very end of the article they mention that it costs between $615 and $949.
That's not a Raspberry Pi competitor, that's a Mac Mini competitor. This is a false Equivalence.
