Picture for just a moment that the spectacular introductory price on the FEZ Panda was gone. The FEZ Panda would then be $34.95. Jump over to the FEZ Mini and we can see the price is $49.95.
I obviously don’t know all the internal things that go on behind production of these things. They seem to use the same USBizi chip, but the FEZ mini has less copper, solder, PCB, no power barrel connector, and no breakaway pins soldered on.
Would someone care to elaborate on why the FEZ mini is more expensive?
