OK, that is really good value!

Underpants as in the Pi Pico RAM expansion? If not, I am baffled.

The CPU architecture is in the description. It is ESP32:


... as used in many very-low-end smart devices, like wifi adaptors for
8-bit computers, and even standalone machines, e.g.

For clarity: I am not proposing the ESP32 as an Oberon target. I think
it is _too_ low-end. But they are under €10, in fact well under if you
shop around. All I am saying is that yes, there are standalone
computers down around this price point that don't seem to be suffering
too badly from the chip shortages.
