Low price on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+

Personally? The new 4 4gb model is sooo worth the upgrade. I use it as a desktop and it is surprisingly capable.


It looks like the deal is $30.50 which is $4.50 cheaper then it was just a few months ago when it was the RPi’s top of the line product.

However the RPi4 is now out which is $35 (with $45 and $55 models with more RAM). The RPi 4 has a lot more I/O bandwidth and a much faster CPU and GPU. So the $4.50 savings may not be that great a bargain. On the other hand the RPi4 also requires more power (and power via a USB-C link at that), so if you have a power/weight constrained project the RPi3 may be a better product for you (or the RPi Zero), regardless of the price differences.

Thank you–was about to ask how much it’s on sale for!

Waiting for the hash check on my Raspbian SD card right now so I can boot my RPi4.
