Couldn't find the section you discussed at the end of this video on http://www.androidauthority.com/. Did search "Ask Dave Raspberry Pi" to no avail. Can you give me a specific link or at least respond to this comment? Asked question on another Raspberry Pi vid from 2016 (another channel) and still no response after two days. What the heck, I'll paste those questions here. I guess the answer to the second question (will vga work with vga to hdmi cable converter) should work due to Pi 3 having a HDMI plug:
What's the largest capacity MicroSD Card that Raspberry Pi 3 can handle? I see 16GB included with all kits, but surmise it will handle lots more. Then again, is it recommended to just use MicroSD Card for OS and utilize thumb drive or hard drive for auxiliary storage?
Also, has anyone tried a vga to hdmi adapter to see if old monitors work on Raspberry Pi 3?
raspberry pi company should really make a raspberry pi pro where its a tiny bit bigger and more expensive but also a killer in performance and have more advance later ports of all the other raspberry pies.
The Raspberry Pi 3 was my first Pi as well. The earlier releases were so-so but, the Pi 3 finally brings legit power and versatility. It's pretty awesome! I recommend C4 Lab's Zebra cases also. Very slick looking.
A Pi 3 will be excellent for a laptop replacement, at least in terms of mobility, when it has a battery. I don't imagine that it would use a lot of power either. However a desktop or laptop will overpower it in terms of gaming. But I don't expect a tiny quad core processor to do gaming as its obviously not meant to.
I love it! I have so much fun with it and it is true RPi3 can replace desktop PC. I use kweb for WWW and Omxplayer GUI to play media files. I tried Firefox Iceweasel but it is slow and had problem with audio on Youtube. I would recommend RPi3 to everbody!
You have to love the irony of Android Authority reviewing one of the few SBCs that does NOT run 'droid... The whole Odroid line, Banana Pi, Lemaker, Orange Pi xx, all run Android 4.4 or higher... but the much-hyped RPi Foundation, seems to be on a 4-year campaign to AVOID Android at all costs... WTHey?
Rasberry pis are pointless because of smartphones. I have a rasberry pi and it is far slower than a cheap smart phone, even for video streaming. Only use the rasberry pi for text documents and programming. Anything else like emulators, videos, music is better on a smartphone or a full computer.
You can get them at Newark for $35 everyday price, now: http://www.newark.com/raspberry-pi/raspberrypi3-modb-1gb/sbc-raspberry-pi-3-mod-b-1gb-ram/dp/77Y6520?ost=77Y6520&selectedCategoryId=&iscrfnonsku=false
+Steve Capone well Android devices can currently run ps2 games, all be it not anywhere close to full speed, however with more resources available due to a lighter os, maybe the pi3 would be powerful enough if it had a little more ram. ie: the pi4 will be able to run a playable ps2 game if the ram is sufficient enough of a jump.
I think it's the exchange rates. As of right now, Newark.com has the Raspberry Pi three listed at US$35! I admit it is the first time I have seen that – being a customer in the USA, myself. "Good news!" :-)
It is basically a smartphone-ish computer, but a very basic one. The programmable PIN connectors allow for lots of applications which is what made it take off with hobbyists, who otherwise would have to design their own embedded systems (like the processor in your washing machine) to do what they want.
