It's a good kit with everything you need to get started, however the price has been much cheaper before. I got mine (with 32gb SD) for $80 all in back around black friday

What's the purpose of this? Is this for doing some sort of network wide adblocking?

From what I know, the Raspberry Pi is a small programmable circuit board. It essentially allows the DIYer to build your own electronic. You can attach sensors or motors to it. You can make it control other devices.

For example, some projects that I have heard of include:
1) building your own fish tank by attaching a temperature sensor
2) building your own home-beer brewing regulator. Devices are run at certain brew stages.

It's essentially a credit card sized ARM processor based computer. The Pi4 can technically be used as a computer itself given that this kit has active cooling. The OS is Linux based.
However, many use them for various types of hobby projects and can be used for things like ad block, network repeater, etc.
It's a pretty cool piece of tech and very versatile.
Perfect for some hardware based programming projects!

Its a little bit like asking…. « Whats the purpose of a computer? »

There’s no specific answer as a computer is so versatile.
A Raspberry Pi is a little computer. Could be used as an ad blocker, multitude of other server, hifi audio player source, desktop computer, media streamer…. The possibilities are endless.

I personally use one to drive a 3D printer with octoprint. One for volumio, one for omv5, and other applications too.

Good kit, but might have been cheaper in the past. Issues for me was the fan did not last long. Might have been me running it in high speed(5V) mode. Also been getting undervoltage warning on the OS recently, the included power supply might not be as durable and would recommend a better one. Still runs okay for me even with the warnings, have some containers and a pivpn instance running on this.

It's a very small, very low power, computer.

The number of things you can do with it are basically limitless.

I use various Pis around the house for:

- DIY IP cam
- Illumination sensor for my smart home
- ADSB receiver uploading to FR24
- Earthquake detection - https://raspberryshake.org/
- Meteor detector - https://www.skyatnightmagazine.com/advi ... -detector/
- ad blocking as you mentioned - https://pi-hole.net/

People use them for pretty much anything you can think of. Next project on my list:

Grab a Pi Zero and use PiHole. Cheaper and very functional on the Zero.
