The Raspberry Pi Thread

There is, but he's right. Lots of refurbished tiny PCs in the market from Dell/Lenovo around 10-12k. They will outperform the Pi at not a significantly larger footprint. And x86 will give you more choices on terms of software you can run on it.
Yes and as someone else mentioned earlier, even an old Android tablet will outperform the Pi for many use cases. For that matter, why would you even consider a Pi when your use case can be fulfilled by some cheaper x86 options ?

Yes. Raspberry Pi made sense at its 4-5k price points, but not at all at its current prices.

One can only hope you understand the difference between a Pi and a desktop.
As i know the difference, and the price point for a card sized computer which will be a tiny linux box for my use case, i cant spend more than 6K, that will be the right price point, for 10K we can go for powerful desktops, and hope you know the fact,,,

C the whole point, people go for Palm-sized PC is for its price and the size and still match the power of PC, PI entered the PC BUILD scenario with this path-breaking two rules,

1. SIZE and 2. PRICE, now the price point is sneaking into PC Price point is unacceptable by breaking the promise of their principle.. i would stay with PC for that price point, and every sane person will take the Same wise decision only,....

If you are looking at only the size and price as differentiating factors, then I am afraid you do not know the difference between a Pi and a desktop. You are wasting time on this thread. Please go read up on what all features a Pi has and what all it can be used for.

Your Perception is weak brother, the whole world knows DESKTOPS in mainstream is more powerful, and if u cant accept this simple fact, the loss is not mine, FYI, I love PI too but not its pricing, again the promise is broken!!

Both have very different use cases. Simply put, RPi is NOT a replacement for a desktop PC.
Yes, the current prices are atrocious garbage.

In my Perception, PI is the future, its path breaking, Hence whole Processor industry will put their investment in SOC, traditionally we know it and its heading towards that direction, if the PI cant stay in its price range, PI is failing, PI is trying to reach the PC sector, when PC already exists in that price range.... there is some correction is happening which is bit confusing... so look deeply into economy and competition between stalwarts and small scale inventors, there will be bad taste, i dont want to say more about it, ITS PICO FORM FACTOR that matters, Pi Falls into that category, what if stalwarts wants their foothold there??
