What's the cost like? Is the board made up of separate components (CPU, ROM,
RAM, USB chip, buffers for I/O, Ethernet chip etc.)?
I'd find Ethernet more useful than USB, and in an ideal world I'd prefer a
board where the functional areas are segregated (rather than some complex and
expensive single chip, where if disaster strikes the thing basically needs
throwing out and replacing as a complete unit)
