I mostly agree with this author's post but I think the 'I just want to play around with this' vibe of the original post mostly missed.

So yes - those things are "expensive" (in the 'it's a lot of money' sense) but "inexpensive" in the (stuff is hard to build and takes some knowledge and parts).

But I feel reminded of those cheap 60 bucks tablets that are not high end and fail all the time for various reasons, but if you just want a wall-mounted touchscreen why would you buy an ipad instead of one of these.

Good point but i don't think it applies in the context of a medical device.
