A lot of people buy Raspberry Pis for projects that just need a cheap computer. To me that’s a shame, because there’s a lot of cheap fanless computers out there that are as good or better for the purpose of being a computer.
@sj_zero from an environmental point of view that’s also a same. There are a lot of thin clients that make very good little servers, and businesses tend to throw away a bunch when it’s upgrade time.
That article is also interesting because it says they are prioritising OEM vendors instead of us mere mortals. I feel that is partially worsened by the closed hardware nature of the raspberry pis, you can’t just give someone the schematics and have them manufacture it
True, repurposing low energy systems like those is a clear win.
I have a Pi4 8gb, but if they’re in demand I’ll happily trade it for a more modern SBC with improved specs. 😂
