Burning question. After I get one and fit a case for it, I can install RetroPie, correct?

Buy it then give it to me /troll

Buy it. It's good for basic electrical engineering. I'm also planning to buy one. But I already spent the money on buying a 1TB hdd yesterday .-.

Haha.

Why did you need it? Just askin. :rolleyes:
But my dad's gonna give me his 2TB external drive for my games after I homebrew my Wii U.

Yeah, raspberry pies are awesome!
I have one and I'm making an arcade machine thing with emulators and stuff.

I'm using a 80GB old seagate HDD that creates creepy sounds. (Creepy as in sounds that indicate that it's close to getting broken)
I bought a Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB. My motherboard uses legacy BIOS so I can only get up to 1 TB (MBR and GPT things).

It's an internal HDD BTW.


I'm planning to buy a raspberry pi to experiment with IoT.

Oh wow, can you write this down on this paper called "Death Star Plans"?

Can someone explain to me what this is? Does it have to do with coding/engineering?

Raspberry Pi is a mini computer. It has pins available for interfacing with electrical devices which you can control using programs.
And you need to code those programs.

Or you could just use it as an arcade device or home theater pc.

Or a high end Arduino. :rolleyes:

I used one of those for my internship.
I learned how to program LED lights to dim with the adjustable resistor thingy.

Never again though :D

Ok, for people that don't know what a Raspberry Pi is, it's basically a mini-computer.

It's not really new.
