Price of Raspberry Pi 4B with 2GB RAM Drops to $35 Permanently

Filed under
Linux

Raspberry Pi 1 Model B was introduced to the world almost exactly 8 years ago on February 29, 2012, and to celebrate the Raspberry Pi Foundation decided to permanently lower the price of Raspberry Pi 4B with 2GB RAM to $35.

This was made possible due to falling RAM prices. The 1GB RAM version will still be sold for $35 to industrial and commercial customers due to long term support commitments. Sadly, the 4GB RAM version remains at $55, so no discount for this version for now.

Raspberry Pi 4 Linux computer gets twice the RAM and USB-C power

  • Raspberry Pi 4 Linux computer gets twice the RAM and USB-C power fix

    The Raspberry Pi line has provided great little Linux computers to nerds -- its low price and small size makes it ideal for tinkering and doing projects. But also, the device has proven to be a solid media device, wonderful for watching videos and emulating classic video games. In other words, it has been a very versatile computer, serving as many things to many people.

    With the release of the Raspberry Pi 4, however, it finally became powerful enough to serve as a true desktop computer. By installing a Linux distribution, some people can use it for day-to-day computer use, such as web browsing, playing media, and word processing. Unfortunately, the $35 base model came with a paltry 1GB of RAM. Today, this changes, as the company has dropped the price of the 2GB version to $35, effectively doubling the memory for the base model.

Bye Bye 1GB Pi

  • Bye Bye 1GB Pi

    The 2GB RAM model of Raspberry Pi 4 has dropped in price by $10 to the $35 — the same as the 1GB. The price drop followed the confirmation last week that a new RPi 4 has been released that fixes the USB Type-C problem.

    The Raspberry Pi Foundation celebrated the 8th birthday of the original Raspberry Pi SBC by cutting the price of the the previously $45 2GB LPDDR4 Raspberry Pi 4 Model B model to $35. Although the 1GB RAM model will still be available, it will likely fade quickly as the 2GB model assumes the role of the entry-level SKU. The 4GB DDR4 model stays at $55.

Raspberry Pi 4 Linux Computer with 2GB RAM Gets a Price Cut

  • Raspberry Pi 4 Linux Computer with 2GB RAM Gets a Price Cut

    If you’ve been holding out on buying the latest Raspberry Pi 4 computer, now it’s the perfect time to do so as the 2GB RAM model costs less. On their eighth birthday, the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced today that you buy the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B with 2GB RAM for only $35 USD.

    Until today, the retail price of the 2GB RAM Raspberry Pi 4 model was $45 USD, so a $10 USD cut goes a long way as people will get more RAM for the same price.

    It also turns out that the 1GB RAM Raspberry Pi 4 model is still on sale, but why would you get it if you can have double the RAM for the same price?

  • Raspberry Pi 4 Linux Computer Upgrade Adds 1Gb of RAM and USB-C

    The Raspberry Pi line Linux computers are serving the nerds and geeks just perfectly. The price of this computer is small, which makes it very affordable, and its an excellent device for doing projects as well as other tinkerings.

    The Raspberry Pi line Linux computers is also a suitable media device, which makes it great for watching videos as well as playing classic video games.

HACKERS and HOSPITALS: How you can help

Free software activists, as well as many scientists and medical professionals, have long since realized that proprietary medical software and devices are neither ethical nor adequate to our needs. The COVID-19 pandemic has illuminated some of these shortcomings to a broader audience -- and also given our community a unique opportunity to offer real, material help at a difficult time. We're putting together a plan to pitch in, and we hope you'll join us: keep reading to find out what you can do! You may already be aware that software and hardware restrictions are actively hampering the ability of hospitals to repair desperately needed ventilators all over the world, and how some Italian volunteers ran into problems when they 3D printed ventilator valves. (As you can see from the link, the stories vary about exactly what their interaction with the manufacturer was, but it's clear that the company refused to release proprietary design files, forcing the volunteers to reverse-engineer the parts.)

OCRFeeder - Where images go to text

Recently, finding really cool, new, unique Linux software has become a difficult task. A chore. And by recently, I actually meant these past four or five years, even since the slow decline of enthusiasm and innovation in the desktop space started. After all, there's a limit to how much good stuff can exist in a finite volume of intellect, but let's not forget the wrong shift of focus to mobile and the shattering of the year-of-the-Linux dream. This makes my test of a four-year-old piece of software named OCRFeeder valid, I think. For two reasons. If it's good, it's good. Second, I've always been interested in the progress of optical character recognition, and whether our tools (read AI) can do a reasonable job here. I wrote about this in detail a while back, and then reviewed YAGF in 2015. Now, let's have a look at OCRFeeder and what it can do. After me, brave Linux warriors. Read more
