The Raspberry Pi certainly set the bar for low priced hardware. The Raspberry Pi Foundation (a charitable foundation) was aiming for a low price to penetrate educational markets and the Pi was subsidized in many ways. I don't think it is necessary or practical to try competing in the $5-$50 U.S. range as this would require selling hundreds of thousands of a single chip SoC board. I think the $50-$150 range is a sweet spot which is obtainable (and affordable for most people) and could still sell well with the uniqueness and retro appeal of a product with the right features. I would look to sell at least 50,000 units.
