Well, "starting at"...

The 4GB version ("wenn schon, denn schon"... ;-) ) is $55, add to that 
that you need also a 5V/3A power supply, a SD card and now new (mini) 
HDMI cables or adapters. Add a screen/monitor to it, and/or a camera, 
keyboard, mouse and you are north of $100, in range where you get a low 
end notebook these days...

Nevertheless, it is a nice step of evolution, specially now that it has 
a dedicate Gigabit Ethernet and WiFi chip and doesn't (ab)use the USB 
controller for that as on previous models. Wish they could decide to 
make a 2 or 3 Ethernet port model, so you can build a really nice and 
handy firewall/VPN gateway... :P

That said, Lazarus was workable on a RPi3B+, with just 1GB of RAM...
