Swapped PC For Raspberry Pi 4 Model B For A Week: Review #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Yetnesh Dubey on Fossbytes takes a deep dive look into the Raspberry Pi 4:
Having used the first version of Raspberry Pi before, I knew the kind of performance I’d be getting on the Raspberry Pi 4. However, I was quite surprised by the upgraded performance of the Raspberry Pi 4 as it was a huge step up from the first Pi board when it came out.
So here’s what happened when I decided to spend a week with the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (4 GB variant).
The Raspberry Pi 4 is a significant upgrade over its previous generation and absolutely nails in terms of performance, considering its size. If you want to do simple computing tasks like browsing the internet, editing some documents or watching an online video, then Raspberry Pi 4 is the best thing you can buy in under $100.
