RasPi 4 now available !
« on: June 24, 2019, 01:56:51 PM »
Good Day folks,

Well the new Raspberry Pi model 4 is OUT and an upgrade it is, with up to 4GB Ram onboard, 4K Video & more.   Released earlier than expected but competition is growing fierce and forward motion was accelerated.

More Information here at Raspi Org;
https://www.raspberrypi.org/products/raspberry-pi-4-model-b/

And the pricing remains quite affordable as it's only a couple of dollars more than previous versions... can't go wrong there.
Classic-200, Samlex EVO-4024 Inverter/Charger, 2080W of Canadian Solar CS-260P in 2 strings of 4,  8x Rolls Surette S-550 24V/856Ah battery bank.

I don't think the Pi 4B is quite available yet

Mid or early August I think.

Just tried to order the  Raspberry Pi 4 Desktop Kit

This is also another youtuber who does a lot of reviews on Pi and other similar small board computers

I watched a couple of reviews including Andreas and I think it's likely a good thing to wait on till not only the software is ready to go but for any potential quirks to be sorted out.  I have a gut feeling they will have heat issues and that pretty much will need some cooling.  Must say, I am disappointed they didn't put a faster CPU on there.

Been peeking at OrangePi and a couple of others in the PI sub-families but none have the same following & support that Raspi Does.  Although the Orange Pi's do have a few extra features which may tempt me to try one...  Something to ponder on I suppose.
