Comparison of ARM based boards suitable for derivative product development (these are not complete/ready to use PCs)

Boards of pre-Cortex generation excluded, except for the hysterically hyped Raspberry Pi.
Elements of http://socialcompare.com/en/comparison/usb-stick-dongle-mini-computer included for reference as possible donors of motherboard and price indicator.

Do not hesitate to contribute by adding new criteria, boards or replace uneditable columns
