Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Superior performance compared with other boards
Pro Built-in heatsink
The ODROID C2 has a built-in heatsink which covers the CPU and two of the RAM chips.
Pro Can fit inside Raspberry Pi cases
Since its shape and size closely mimic that of Pi 3, it can fit on most Raspberry Pi cases available.
Pro Good support for Ubuntu
The C2 has pretty decent support for Ubuntu and it can be used with it for basic day-to-day operations such as browsing the web and editing documents with LibreOffice among others.
Pro Will have mainline kernel support
Pro Relatively low power requirements
The board by itself needs about 0.5A to run, but it's advised to use a 2A power supply for when peripherals are attached.
Pro USB 3.0 available
Lattepanda has a USB 3.0 port available.
Pro Integrated WiFi and Bluetooth
WiFi and Bluetooth are integrated on the board so your USBs are available for other peripherals.
The Lattepanda has a Arduino-compatible coprocessor for any projects which involve an Arduino.
Pro Can function as a day-to-day PC
Lattepanda comes with a full Windows 10 installation. While by no means a powerhouse it can easily deal with daily tasks such as checking email, editing documents and browsing the web.
Pro HDMI plus LCD and touch ports
On the LattePanda you have the choice of the HDMI output for a normal style monitor screen or you can buy the little 7" LCD and if you wish, the touch-screen option which means you free up the HDMI feed for other tasks such as playing a movie file etc.
This also gives you the option of not having to plug in a USB keyboard because the LattePanda will default to providing a touch-screen keyboard style interface via the combination touch-screen and LCD.
Pro Can fit most Raspberry Pi cases
Since it's almost the same size a the Raspberry Pi 3, it can fit inside most of the cases built for the Pi.
Pro Integrated arduino
Pro Tablet mode enabled (by code)
With the Atom Cherrytail, you could attach the board to a touchscreen to create an ultimate Surface Pro experience (except for the fact that it doesn't have a camera).
Pro Full Windows 10
Comes pre-installed with a full edition of Windows 10, including powerful tools such as Visual Studio, NodeJS, Java, Processing, and more.
Pro Faster than most other single-board computers
The 64-bit Intel Atom system-on-a-chip used in the LattePanda board offers greater processing power in comparison to ARM-based single-board computers.
Pro System installed on internal flash
System is installed on eMMC rather than an SD card like other SBCs. This means no extra physical components are required in order to get the computer to boot.
Con No built in WiFi
There is no built-in WiFi, and kernel headers for 3.14 are almost impossible to find, making driver compiling very difficult.
Con Old kernel available
Only the 3.14 branche is available
Con Early revisions use a 2.5mm power socket instead of a USB port
Early revisions of the C2 use a 2.5mm power socket instead of the micro USB port available on the board or any of the other USB ports. While not a drawback in terms of strength of the board, it's a bit annoying having to order a new power supply to work with the C2.
Later revisions of the board can use the USB port for charging. However, ODROID recommends using the power socket if there are several devices attached to the board because they can increase the draw up to 2A and a lot of cheaper USB power adapters won't do 2A.
Con Might have problems with default HDMI resolution when first starting up
It's not unusual for the C2 to have a "Mode not supported" message when first booted up and connected to a monitor through the HDMI port. This can be fixed by logging through SSH and editing the boot.ini on a FAT partition on the SD card to set the correct HDMI resolution and the process is detailed pretty well on the ODROID wiki but it may be out of scope for some users and pretty annoying for the rest.
Con Only Windows 10 is officially supported
While it may work with other OSes such as Linux or Android, it has no official images for these operating systems and may have compatibility issues.
Con Throttles due to poor heatsinks
This thing throttles down to 400 MHz due to poor cooling thus making it useless without some knowledge of computer building and modification.
Con No support for HDMI-CEC
When you connect it to a TV or projector it sometimes requires extra manual settings on the output device, such as for viewing 3D. Also, you can not control the player on this board with your TV or projector remote via HDMI-CEC.
