I'm sorry, barely more?
It's 32 to 61% more!!!
Defeats the entire purpose of an rPi in the first place...
This was not a required product they are just trying to get in on rPi's already well-established market.
If rPi iterate to this kind of spec in the next 12-24 months, I bet they don't hike up the price like that.
I don't think they will since.. you don't need GB ethernet, 192K/24bit or swappable antennas for rPi projects, seems daft.
also the rPi 3 ran pretty warm... It'l be interesting to see where this falls in terms of thermal output...
