Good Read: MagPi Magazine Issue 85

From the MagPi Team:

Can you do everything with a $55 computer? We’ve been pretty confident about using Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB RAM as our main desktop PC. This month we put it to the test, by getting one of our best makers to use nothing but Raspberry Pi 4 for a week. And report back the results!

PJ Evans has written a seven-day diary experience of using Raspberry Pi 4 as a desktop PC replacement. It’s packed with advice, tips and tricks. The best replacement apps and online services and what works, and what isn’t so good.

It’s a thoughtful piece packed with useful insights. A vital read for any Raspberry Pi 4 owner:
