[TR] Raspberry Pi RAM Doubled - Page 4

post #31 of 68
I can't even get one and they are releasing new models... Bah!

I've been trying to get one since they came out (refuse to pay almost $100 after shipping, can't find a reasonable seller for shipping rates... that has stock)

A good use of the Pi, and its primary purpose, is education. Schools can get capable thin clients for very low costs.
Aha, I see, I suppose MS won't be fond of these then wink.gif

Have you even looked at what a Raspberry Pi before? The memory in onboard.
No, sorry.

Cool ! My parents' laptop can't even run 1080p smoothly biggrin.gif

Not quite the same.... there's no programmable controller and it costs twice as much.

Different devices for different needs.

The developers discussed about going with Broadcom already.... the most important criteria for the project was price. They had awknowledge the restrictions with Broadcom but it was by far the best choice to hit their pricing.

Actually from what I've seen on my Pi the RAM is stacked on top of the CPU like it is on most smartphones/tablets. If you had a reflow oven I suppose you could replace the RAM though removing it without moving the CPU would be pretty tricky.

I got my Pi this Saturday and after reading this I was kind of bummed, though I realized that the CPU was slow enough so it isn't like I can run that many applications at once unless they're all graphically intensive and not demanding on the CPU.

Another thing to note are the polyfuses I had issues with (my keyboard and mice don't get enough power and I'm waiting on the power cables for my USB hub). I tried shorting them out (F1 and F2) though nothing changed. If they could fix the polyfuses so that they would work up to standard USB 2.0 spec (500mA for each port) then these problems wouldn't come about with my peripherals.

Actually they cost almost the same. The PI costs on average 320 RMB, the MK808 costs 350 to 380.

I don't know how reliable the RK3066 is nor do I know how well optimised their version of Android is (4.1.1)

In China the MK808 has barely any use as not many people have an HDTV and it's adoption isn't at lightning speed. If it had some other form of connectivity other than HDMI I would have considered it myself but most people here have no need for a media consumption device such as this and those who do have a tablet.
