Amazing for everything from a video/file server to a router, or game emulator. Perfect and great price! The new model (RPi 3) is much faster than its predecessors. Indeed, it’s 10x faster than RPi 1, and double the speed of RPi 2. Now with integrated WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1 which deliver flexibility in siting the Raspberry Pi, and make it more attractive as a set-top computer, a video server, game emulator, and infinitely more. This thing screams!

Great upgrade to the Raspberry Pi lineup Works like a charm. Loaded up with RetroPi and it’s playing old games like a champ. No stuttering, extra USB ports are a definite plus compared to my old Pi, and the built in wireless is the frosting on the cake. Overall, it’s a great upgrade if you have an existing Pi and want some of the extra features that this offers. Currently have mine living in a …

Really nice This is the new model of the Raspberry Pi. One nice thing is that WiFi is now built in. You no longer need a dongle. It’s also faster than the model 2, with a fast 4 core ARM processor. It’s really not that much slower than my desktop PC. I loaded Raspbian on it, which is a version of Debian / Ubuntu. It’s really easy to install. Just download Win32diskimager from SourceForge.net and the Raspian image from raspberrypi.org, burn it onto an SD, and it will boot up. As far as I can tell, you can…
