Pico-ITX SBC runs Linux on 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro
It seems pretty intresting ... a little bigger then Pi sized boards but definitely intresting.

I don't like how they stack the ports, you have this small thin board then a big tall USB/Network combo on one end making the enclosure twice as big as it needs to be.

Yeah ... my quest for the next arm device I'm gonna have is not over yet:
the trimslice isn't that much better then my AC100 to make it appealing to me,
the Matrix is a bit on the expensive side for being just a SBC but if definitely has interesting features,
the ODROID-U3 configured like a Matrix would be almost as expensive but still lack mini-pci express, sata and Gb ethernet but has 70% more crunch in the CPU,
the Pi is a little underpowered on the CPU for my likings
and I'm a little skeptik that any Allwinner SOC based board might have issues with USB devices running from sunxi-linux kernel (just like my A13 based tablet)

Anyone have any suggestions ?

I'm trying to find a small board now for a dedicated web server. The Raspberry Pi just isn't working and I don't have any old hardware laying around. Doesn't have to be ARM, just something small.
