    Connected, image on sd card and installed. Immediately also a GUI in the new Raspbian, afterwards playing with RetroPie and immediately back in the middle of the 80s arcade game atmosphere. Now turn it into a node server via SSH and with some expansion later also use it as an educational robot control. or watch some series with Kodi. plenty of possibilities. Strong computer for a few euros!

    super flexible to apply
    • super small (credit card size)
    • many connection ports (4xUSB, Ethernet, headphones, HDMI)
    • many accessories to get
    • large Raspberry Pi community
    • super versatile
    • the price, if they had been cheaper I would have bought one for all kinds of functions.

    The Raspberry Pi 3B+ is very suitable for thousands of purposes. I turned it into a media player and it was actually a shame that it was so easy. The wide community on the internet makes it extremely easy to use the raspberry pi for your purpose.
