Raspberry PI alternatives


Even though the raspberry PI is a very popular low cost hobby pc kit, I would like something a little more powerful. Does anyone know of such models. I don't mind spending $150 or less.

The cubieboard comes to mind. I quite like the specs.
There's also the BeagleBoard and Pandaboard. But they're a bit more expensive.
I just found the ODROID-X2. At first glance it seems nice.

Recently I stumbeled upon the Wandboard. There are diferrent versions to choose from. I myself am using the Cubieboard right now. It has better specifications than the Raspberry Pi, but that doesn't result in a spectaculair improvement of performance in comparison to the Pi for me. But it suites my needs.
