No direct experience with either, but looked at both and decided on a Blue ODROID N2+ (4GB ram, 64GB EMCC) preconfigured with HA from Ameridroid: 1) didn't need Matter or Zigbee, 2) didn't want to mess with finding a Pi and building it all; 3) concerns about Pi speed and memory.  Added a PoE adapter to power.  Running 4 months now without any hardware issues.  Typical usage is about 30% CPU, 60% memory (I have 80+ wired/wireless devices, 30+ Zwave via Ring and 20+ LoRa/YoLink devices; about 1000 entities).

This is how I'm displaying weather info and about 50 other household event triggers.

Thanks for your input. Your points 1,2 & 3 are same as my opinions.
I want to use HA as an integration tool for my other devices:

I already have Homematic for comfort control;  Samsung Smartthings Hub v3 for lighting and power.

Have decided on the Green as it is basically a Single Board Computer preloaded with  Home Assistant.
First steps will be to integrate my existing set-up and weather station.
