Just bought a couple of RPi 3’s for a contract project (more on that later).
They’re great. Really great. But the idea that they’re cheap is not true.
First, the board (35€). Then, a decent sd card (8€). Then, a big enough power source (10-15€). Then a keyboard and mouse (15€). A case. (10-15€). Monitor/LCD (25€ used) and HDMI cable (7€).
You can easily run to 100€-125€ to be able to use a RPi for something. A decent used laptop is that price.
Any opinions? Is RPi really cheap or not?
