Hello linux.org,

Curious if anyone has a Raspberry Pi, no not the eating kind.

I'm thinking about getting one.
Raspberry Pi 4 is released according to this article.




Thanks

Yeah I'm thinking about getting on although want to find out more about them and see what all is available as I see they can be gotten as a kit package.

It appears they can be used for quite a few different deticated types of uses and devices which would be neat to have.

Yep I'm finding that out the more I check in to them.

Is the ram fixed or can it be expanded I wonder because I keep reading about the different size sd cards although I'm thinking that's more for storage.
 
They are great but can require some knowledge

That's ok I like a challenge, I need to exercise those little grey cells of mine.

I found some cook books for earlier Pi devices so I'm going to give them a look at and see what I can learn about them.

I'm wondering how they compare speed wise to a normal computer or tablet.

Hello guy!!!! I am interesting about Pi too, actually I am about to set up my own cloud at my home.
Just yesterday I saw that Pi 4 is released and this is making me more curious.

I've been mulling over the idea of a getting a Pi and seeing what all it's capable of and then reading about the Pi 4 I've become seriously interested in buying one.

I'm going to see if I can find one locally that I can actually look at and see what is available possibly see it working.

My interest in the Pi 4 reminds me of being interested in building my first crystal radio as a kid.

I have a Pi 4 on order (2 Gig model) to replace my 3b+, which I am using as a Network Area Storage (NAS). I just hope my order is from the initial stock and not on the pre-order list. I have been waiting for this unit since it was announced.

Yep that's why I'd prefer to purchase locally and not be put on a back order whenever list.

I also want the 4.0 GB model can't ever have to much ram.

UPDATE: Just notified that my new Raspberry Pi 4 just shipped. So, it appears I got my order in before everyone ran out of stock. :)

Man these things are going quick as if ordered today it will ship Aug 1 2019. :(

The kits they offer look to be what ya need so I may just have to wait until the new thrill wears of and they get an on hand stock of the 4.0 GB boards.
