For rapid development, an Atom-based x86 motherboard with a cheap (<
$5) Bluetooth USB dongle and a cheap (<$5) USB flash boot disk would

trying to prototype small-run projects on ARM, etc. embedded Linux
boards. It's so much easier (and, function for function, cheaper) to
take a COTS x86 netbook and repurpose it.
