Can you use the Raspberry Pi 3 as your work PC?
"The Raspberry Pi 3 is a $35 computer that is on the cusp of challenging the modern PC.
The bump to the processing power of the latest machine has, according to its co-creator, elevated its performance to a point where it can comfortably be used as a desktop computer.
To determine whether the latest Pi really can go toe-to-toe with a current laptop, I spent a week using the Pi 3 as my main work machine.
The test is inherently unfair, my regular laptop – a Toshiba Portege Z30 – costs roughly 40 times the price of the Pi 3, and Pi co-creator Eben Upton was comparing the board with an 'entry-level PC' from more than six years ago.
But despite the odds being stacked against the Pi, the credit card-sized computer held its own in many respects and demonstrated just how much power it squeezes out of its budget hardware.”
