Cradlepoint is focused on the mobile enterprise market, and though Cradlepoint used to have many options for "average" users most have been discontinued over the years as Cradlepoint has focused on the higher end of the market.
Individuals with specific needs though do often find value in going with Cradlepoint hardware.
The Cradlepoint ARC MBR1400 ($379, without a cellular module) only had one USB port, but adds 5GHz WiFi, gigabit ethernet, and the ability to mate with a paired cellular modem. It has been discontinued by Cradlepoint, and replaced by the AER1600 line.
