Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Can run OpenWRT (embedded linux), instructions are available on google. For the price, you get an embedded linux box that can connect to webcams, flashdrives, arduinos, etc. There's also an internal serial port available if you're handy with a soldering iron.
Cons:
The available flash is pretty small (4MB), there's not much you can do without using an external flash drive. Python is too big to install, but you can install Lua or compile C programs to it.
Other:
There is no 3G!!! This is a misleading term and just means there is a USB port that you can plug a 3G dongle into.
Bottomline:
Buy it if you're interested in wireless robotics, sensor networks, or home automation. Its extremely versatile!
