RE: Raspberry Pi 4 released in 8GB Edition

in #raspberrypi3 years ago

I would prefer a micro pc rather than a Raspberry PI in must scenarios as I don't find it to be punchy enough, like you said 8GB is unnecessary with a slow CPU being the bottle neck.

If you need a workstation, I wouldn't recommend a Pi unless you needed something basic for a kid or a parent. In almost all cases I'd recommend a real PC.

I would recommend a Pi for a workstation if someone wanted to tinker. They could build circuits they could interact with or play around with Linux.

But if the only purpose is a workstation, a Pi wouldn't be high on my list.

If grandma just wanted email and Facebook, it isn't really a bad option.
