Factor in cases, eMMC and so on as well, if you want them. A lot of

It's amazing. The boards look reasonably priced, but when you add on the
necessary bits, they often get to the price of a low end laptop. I have
wondered a few times why I don't move that way.

       I know people who have bought (used) those
Dell/Lenovo/Supermicro Mac Mini-sized computers for that very reason:
at what price point you are using a SBC just for the sake of using a
SBC when a Mini-sized Linux-running computer would be a more capable
device at a similar price?

Good idea. Thanks

And part of why I am contemplating a low end laptop. Another consideration is that I can remove the monitor and keyboard from my overcrowded desk.

All the best
