Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Extremely cheap for what it promises
The Orange Pi PC is extremely cheap, especially compared to the SBCs it competes against.
Pro Great value for the price
Great little linux box for the price
Pro Supports almost all OSes supported by Raspberry
Orange Pi supports Raspbian, Ubuntu, Android and many more operating systems. It claims to support all OSes supported by Raspberry Pi and it seems to be true most of the time.
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 First Party OS support is practically non-existent
Con no wifi
Con Has some thermal throttling issues
The Orange Pi can get pretty hot, up to the point where it needs to shut down cores to keep it from locking up.
Con Has problems with slow microSD cards
Anything less than a class 10 TF/microSD card will probably not work with the Orange PI. Since the testing and production of the Orange Pi was rushed massively, as a result it cannot step down to be more compatible with slower SD cards. Although it should be mentioned that this is not that much of a problem since you can get class 10 microSD cards for pretty cheap nowadays.
Con No video connector natively
Must use RPIO equivalent to wire any video.
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.
