which H3 SBC for the upcoming <unknown number> Slackware?


So,
I plan upgrade some of my ARM based servers;

And looking forward to do so, I find my self at an uninformed choice:

The H3 is going mainline soon (4.9 boots long time now, lacks only few subsystems)
The H53 is also on horizon

the fate of the ARM v6 as is implies going recent means going long term support.

So what gives?

I eye heavily on Bananas, but the Oranges seem to pack quite a punch in regards bang for buck (pun? )

Any input will be regarded and appreciated || spam >/dev/nul

Question

no one, eh?


latest developments:

-so far found it's gonna be in the $35 price bracket
- even an H5 contender showed up:
Orange Pi PC 2 in that said $35 price bracket.
- The intended favorite : Banana PI M2+
- and the well known intruder with huge bang for buck :Banana Pi M1 beaten by a buck

so far its in this order:
- PC 2 sourced for $33.25, ain't getting much better than this IMO
- M2+ sourced for $33, the tiny, cheapest "has it all", maybe my winner
- M1 sourced for $34, venerable, trusty, and ever beloved one

prices are for my locally, they might wary (shipping) depending on location...

any last thoughts or considerations anyone?
(note: the cave is closing soon)

Arrow

It's done now.

Ended up with Orange Pi PC for ~ $16:
CPU: Allwiner H3 4x@1.6GHz
RAM: 1 GB DDR3
LAN: mere 100M Ethernet (compared to Banana Pi)
PSU: proper 2A power jack
I/O: 3x USB2.0, one OTG USB
I/O: 3pin UART

Board: 85mm x 55mm

intended use:
7/24 available PC, testing & hacking rig, maybe web server.

Now all is left is wait for it to arrive (3 weeks or so)
