So much power in such a small and incredibly cheap machine!

Throw a $29.95 wireless keyboard/mouse and an el-cheapo monitor at it and the RPi4 is actually a respectable little computer that boxes well above its weight for simple tasks such as web-browsing, watching videos, editing documents and even some programming tasks.

If you'd like to have some no-risk fun with an uber-cheap computer, you might find the RPi4 as appealing as I do.

At worst you can relegate it to the role of game-console emulator so you can once again play all those favourites from the 1980s and 90s.

So much fun!

Love the Pis! You could blow the dust off your Pi2 and have it at the airfield running as a security/weather/action cam - load Motioneyeos onto a card and you're immediately up & running. I've got 4 (yeesh - that many?) scattered around: a Pi-1 cat-cam, 2 Pi-2 weather-related in different locations, and one Pi-0 for monitoring the 3D printing.
