Interesting, it is just a Raspberry Pi with custom branding on the box, running some custom software.

It looks like it's an INDI setup on a Raspberry PI. Smart way to go (for the company) with this bundled up package.

Another option would be Stellarmate: https://www.stellarmate.com/

My biggest issue is that the Raspberry Pi 3 doesn't have USB 3.0, which ZWO cameras need. Would'nt this impede data throughout and limit FPS???

Yes, it will.

It would be ok though for longer exposure imaging.

Something like NUC would be a better choice for you as they've got good USB3 support.
