But no hardware virtualization right? I think the minimum we should
target for Fedora development machines is whatever supports hardware
virtualization, which is A-15 IIRC.
No, not just A-15 but also A-12  (not out yet) and the A-7 does too.
However a $45 option *is* good for people on limited budgets or
who want to play with ARM but don't care about virtualization.
Different people have different priorities I don't see a reason to
limit it. The Cortex-A7  SoC design also supports HW virt and the
AllWinner A20 is that SoC so in theory should support it as well as
well and we're starting to see that out on the market, but the kernel
support not yet supported upstream though but it's around $59
