This one a few pennies since they don't charge taxes, lol.

$89.25 vs $88.99

Thanks.

Each of these offers has a variant with a smaller 16G SD card and a different case for $10 less. I'd put links in but it's too much work to scrape mysterious information off of Amazon URLs. Amazon shows them amongst links at the bottom of each listing.

Bought this kit a while back. Not a bad deal, considering you just assemble and it's good to go.

Works great for PiHole. No more ads. :)

I've been tempted to get one of these to build a retro gaming emulator. The thought of having n64, nes, snes, playstation, psp, gameboy, etc all in one console and for $89 is supremely tempting. Although I can hardly scrape together enough time to play through my steam backlog these days...

have you thought about just getting the PS classic for $50?

nah, if I'm going that route I'd rather pay $20 more for ALL the consoles and literally any game I want :P

I bought a Raspberry Pi 3 over a year ago to use for Retro Pi and still haven't taken it out of the box. Yet, for some reason, I'm tempted to buy another one.

RFD - tell me what to potentially do with a second Raspberry Pi (besides Pi Hole).

I would like to buy another one but don't know what to do with it.

Currently running Pihole and Unifi Controller on my first one and OVM on the second one.

Any suggestions? No RetroPi please and I already have a VPN running on my router.

I would like to build some kind of surveillance server

I have a Google Home and two Minis, an Amazon Echo and Echo Dot, a Google Home Hub and I just ordered a Lenovo Smart Display. So I'm (too) covered on that front.

I'm thinking about running Suricata for security, Nextcloud as a dropbox replacement, and also building a NVR to capture RTSP ipcam feeds.

But have started looking at the Odroid boards, which seem to be more powerful - more speed, memory, etc - and work with DietPi.

I thought this smart mirror posted on reddit was a really cool, albeit significantly more involved, project.

Don't expect n64 emulation to be good even with overclocking which i don't recommend since the B+ is essentially an already overclocked pi 3 b

This is a decent deal however, many people expect an announcement of the pi4 sometime this year. The black case that it comes with kinda sucks because theirs no airflow and not a lot of room if you want to add a cpu/gpu cooler but the power supply and sd card are fantastic
