Agree. Should be a pack-in game like Wii Sports in the first place.

Of course. But why? PiHole is a server application running 24/7, normal Pi would be a better choice. Pi 400 comes with different keyboard...

Not a good idea. To use as a router you’ll need two NICs, and the only option for 2nd NIC is USB, which is often flakey in terms of...

Probably because 8GB Pi 4 is EXPENSIVE? I mean you should be able to run thin client with 2GB, right? I would say 4GB is the sweet spot. A...

Yup. My standard is that if it’s over $10 and you’re not sure, I should walk away 😂

There are rarely any promo on Pi’s. In most time they’re back-ordered due to supply shortages. If I recall correctly, when zero series...

Thanks! I’ve digging into it a bit and updated the post

Since Pi 400 is based on Pi 4, so almost everything running on Pi 4 will run on Pi 400. And Pi 400 is inspired by Commodore 64, so you can...

You’ll also need to make sure it’s not a Thunderbolt docking station (the ones with TB suffix).

[Preorder] Raspberry Pi 400 $107 (or Kit for $152) + Shipping (from $7.95) @ Core Electronics (or Element 14)

TBH I didn’t expect the used cart is also a part of the sale. I mean... just... Wow

I mean... impressive performance paired with impressive price, even after discounts. Welcome to the future :P
