I'm not fond of the rPi. It's a 700Mhz single-core ARM11; too slow for anything useful really. It has a fast dedicated graphics ASIC but that's fixed-function and not very interesting either.

What should I do with one? lol
I googled that, and I still have no idea what it is... (ﾟｰﾟ;BluePanda wrote:I was really wanting to get a Dragon12-Plus board -- but those things are hella expensive -- I mean not horrid in cost but a little pricey to "play" so to say.

Using a Micro Center 32GB SDHC Class 10 card, I found starting most applications (Even the most lightweight GUI browsers present) would take a few seconds to load. Some of this is probably psychological as it's not 'instant' like most of my machines are, and I can't hear a hard drive or see any sort of hourglass.
