As long as it takes for one to become available. I prefer the concept
of using something that is as open as possible by design.

People have been tossing the 500 euro (~$638 USD) benchmark around and
that's a bit steep for me. Depending on the capabilities of the board
and provided it's a drop in replacement I'd say ~$300-350 USD would be
my limit.
