If you consider his efforts to get it done it's cheap.

If you pay him $3 an hour excluding hardware costs,
then you would need to pay more than what he asks, i'm sure of that.

>$1000 is not alot of money to have the worlds strongest dedicated unit

Well it's very easy to wireless connect it to a PC.

Then you are just as strong as the PC at any spot in the house. In fact you can
do that up to 150 meter distance. You can show up wireless in a tournament
without anyone knowing.
