It really depends on what your intended use is, your expectations and level of knowledge.

If you want a board with GbE, plenty of I/O pins, optional BT&wifi via a module (rather than USB), support for IR onboard, support for LCD/touch/camera, lithium battery powerable/chargeable and are willing to fiddle with it, hang out on the forum and IRC when it won't co-operate, then you can't go wrong. It's great for headless linux, can run Android, and can even do some reasonable desktop work.

If you want a refined product/board that you can just install an image on it, and that there is great documentation for, then I'd go with something else. Whilst I'm happy with this board, and I know other people are, it is still very much a work in process! Wink
