ODROID or Raspberry Pi, which hosts Fedora better?

So .. I'm thinking of exploring the world of miniature PCs and I'm wondering which of the two products exemplifies it better -- ODROID or Raspberry Pi? Compared side-by-side Odroid's C2 appears better featured than Pi-3 but I may be missing something since Pi emerged first in the business.

Any one with experience with these products? I'm looking to run Fedora Linux on it -- getting tired of carrying heavy laptops around

So, you want to carry a Rpi and monitor? Not sure that is more convenient than carrying a laptop (there are also smaller ones available...) You may also want to check if Rpi or similar are capable of handling your needs... there is a huge perfomance difference between a current notebook and a Rpi or Odroid device.

You should be reading the Fedora Magazine: Raspberry Pi (2 and 3) support in Fedora 25 Beta!

For desktop use you'd be better off with the Raspberry Pi with Fedora 25. It'll run all the Desktops shipped in Fedora.

But it's not of much use without screen/keyboard so I'm not sure what you save over a laptop.
