What's the difference between the three Linux Intel Compute Sticks?

Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I'm not sure I understand the difference in price for a few of the Intel Compute Sticks. I took the three which support/come with Linux and clicked compare, and every single spec matched. They're all three really cheap, ranging from $56 to $99, but why any price difference at all if the have identical parts?

Hello, Mobutubuntu:

Are you refereeing to this model http://ark.intel.com/products/86613/Intel-Compute-Stick-STCK1A8LFC Intel® Compute Stick STCK1A8LFC Specifications? Where did find that information?

Regards,

Amy.

http://www.intel.com/buy/us/en/catalog/compare/501084/463163/464222 This compare page is where I looked, filtering the products by operating system for "Linux", which I understand is not absolutely necessary but much easier than buying one of the Windows ones and getting a ported version of Ubuntu, Debian, etc. on the device.

Taking a look at the Intel ARK page you posted, it only seems to discuss the default LFC model. I'm looking at the

http://www.intel.com/buy/us/en/product/desktop/intel-boxstck1a8lfcl-501084 Intel® BOXSTCK1A8LFCL

$56.99

http://www.intel.com/buy/us/en/product/desktop/intel-boxstck1a8lfc-463163 Intel® BOXSTCK1A8LFC

$64.99

http://www.intel.com/buy/us/en/product/desktop/intel-boxstck1a8lfcr-464222 Intel® BOXSTCK1A8LFCR

$96.00

which APPEAR to have identical specs. Perhaps these spec-sheets aren't detailed enough to show the difference? But when I searched Intel ARK for the LFCL and LFCR I got nothing.

Thank you very much for taking the time to look at my question.

They all have same all specification which you can also find here; http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/computestick/STCK1A32WFC-STCK... http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/computestick/STCK1A32WFC-STCK...…. The change on the name for each of the Intel® Compute Stick is just a product change notification (PCN) from our side.
