    I don't care what anyone says, this is news:

    Raspberry Pi 4 Launched: Quad Cortex-A72 Single-Board Computer For $35

    Raspberry Pi is an inexpensive small computer board that has developed a great community and following. They released the Pi 4 despite them saying in the past they had a few production issues which could make it until 2020 to release.

    Online benchmarks are showing it twice as fast as the Pi 3B+.

    That's just one website. Go to the Pi website, then search all the locations that have it. There are some available.

    This will be interesting to watch in my hobbiest field 3D printing. Right now its used as a controler board add on for monitoring printing. With base prices starting at under $200 for 3d printers its definitely an affordable field to explore now. Although geeking out at what really is work is odd, i admit that! But my goal is ultimately metal casting so there. Oh thats also work.

    On a side note related to religious forums GOD or MATH creates the real object for the crackpot (we exist in a virtual reality) folk.

    Maybe thats a new fantasy hypothesis for intelligent design theorists, where God uses math but without a computer!!!! WOW!

    I really think they did a good job triple-ing the raw performance of the Pi in the Pi 4, which results in a 2x+ improvement in speed more often than not.

    Maybe it really isn't out yet. I'll do some more research.

    Why should anyone have a problem with Raspberry Pi. A computer is a computer, better than spending a huge amount on normal desktops. I will wait till it arrives in India. I want to have one and it is so affordable - and a new experience.

    I did some more research. It appears availability in the US isn't great yet.

    I'm thinking about doing something pretty crazy. It's rather than buy a new $700-900 PC like I was planning on, buying one of these, saving some money, and putting a lot of time and energy into it. There's really no comparison which is better, the PC, but you can customize your OS on the Pi, you have great community support, just fantastic even. And I might watercool it. Maybe. If this means waiting a month or more for things to be sorted out where the parts necessary exist to watercool it, so be it.
