reasons to use raspberry pi

Comment by Kagerjay
about Raspberry Pi · Jul 2017 ·

A list of reasons why you would want to use a raspberry pi:

  • You need a portable computer to embed into hardware (smart mirror)
  • You need a low-powered computer that needs to run all day and night (Plex server / torrenting)
  • You need a PC to act as a server dedicated to one specific task (Running a VPN, twitter bot, etc)
  • You need to integrate with an arduino to have a device that can run all day and handle inputs / outputs
  • you need a local server / PC
