CM3 Lite with IO Board for GBZ?

I found this Raspberry Pi CM3 Lite with IO Board on Aliexpress.

Will this fits into a Game Boy DMG-1 Case? What you think?

thanks....

IMHO.....
it seem quite expensive to put in a Gameboy build (but that could just be me)

things to note....
its the CM3 lite (doesnt have 4Gbytes eMMC Flash), and not the CM3 (like Kite has in his new AIO)
being a compute module, it also doesnt have built-in wifi (or bluetooth)
with the I/O board its kinda about the size of the RPi3 (not including the depth/height)

and for the price, i'd personally take a gamble at buying 2 RPi3 (about the same cost) and stripping them down....
(i know that involves work, buy you have 2 RPi3 for the same price if not less)


but could be used well in another project or build
and it is cheaper than the official product....

just might thoughts.....

It's expenisve i think, too. Pi3 is a much better choice and very easy to strip. Actually on all my pi3 builds i only remove the usb ports and the ehternet port. That's it.

Do you know the board's dimensions? Looks nice though.
