Review of Raspberry Pi 3

Pros: Low cost, complete computer

Cons: Ethernet is only 10/100

Buy? Yes, I recommend it.

I bought a Raspberry Pi 3 to run RetroPie for gaming and it works perfectly.

There are other single-board computers on the market but not offer the same level of end-user support or have the extensive software ecosystem provided by the Raspberry Pi.

The model 3 is fast enough for most general purpose computing like moderate desktop use, media streaming, or game system emulation. Since it includes a GPIO header you can also use the provided Python SDK to easily create IoT devices.

As if that wasn't enough of a recommendation, it comes packaged in an adorable paper bag.

I paid $69 CAD

Buy from Amazon
