On the other hand, in the very unlikely case the price is the same or less than the R-Pi Model B, that would dethrone R-Pi as the de facto king of SBCs.


You're wrong, no SBC will EVER be as cheap is the raspberry pi. Broadcom subsidizes the price of the pi, so it is insanely cheap. It's the same thing that TI does for it's launch pads. No way could they be making a profit selling a development board and usb cable for $6.

How long ago, was that ?    Impossible to get anything sent from the USA for less than $30 USD now.

$23 to ship with Global Shipping: http://www.ebay.com/itm/181366863940

Well, a Fluke meter in a hard case is a far cry from a Arduino Tre.  $23 is not half bad for that. 


Not very fast though. Apparently.

(It still isn't here, but some other stuff I ordered from China arrived today...)

No, I don't answer questions sent in private messages (but I do accept thank-you notes...)

Shipping prices should be the exact same as the BeagleBone Black because they are coming from the same factory. As for retail price I would expect something around the $75 price. $20 for Leonardo + $45 for BBB + ~$10 for other parts.

Not true, as quick example of an item I bought recently, http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9668/cpa-293/Lian_Li_Dual_25_HDDSDD_to_35_Drive_Bay_Adapter_-_HD-321.html shipped to Finland costs $7.99 shipping with "USPS First Class International".

High costs are from merchants who do not offer this cheap and simple shipping option and only offer e.g. UPS. And while that cheap shipping has quote of 15-30 days, in practice it has allways taken a bit over a week.

I'm disappointed with the Arduino Tre specs.  Why put in an 8-bit microcontroller (Atmel ATmega32u4) with only 10-bit ADC resolution when you have a SAM3X chip that you already worked with?  I'll just stick with the Arduino Due for now.

If I'm able to program the Due using the Tre as a standalone computer, I may reconsider the Tre.

The Arduino Tre developer board was available for a very short time - the developer boards cost $212+.  There were only 50 boards made.  I'll stick with my Uno, Dues, Megas and Nanos for now.  Then a Zero in the future (depending).
