Well, trust me i have no problem to solder few of them and yes i fully understand your point but i will not change my mind - sorry but from my perspective 250E is too much for me.

Estimate PCB assembly cost by yourself:

It is good to mention this design https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...ategory_newest most expensive 229E - for 229E:

"Altera FPGA MAX 10, UPē (UP Squared) is powered by IntelŪ Pentium™ Quad Core N4200 up to 2.5Ghz, up to 8GB of RAM LPDDR4 Dual Channels 64 bit onboard, up to 128 GB onboard eMMC 5.0, more I/O ports including 3 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, 2 Gigabit LAN, 2 HDMI, eDP, mini PCI-e/mini card SATA, M.2 2230, SATA 3.0, 2 CSI and additional 60 pin board-to-board expansion (EXHAT) with GPIO and many other features."

Very similar, niche project addressed mostly toward hobbyist - size comparable to Vampire, more components and components are also more expensive and probably PCB is more than 4 layer...
