Raspberry Pi computers are inexpensive, powerful, and supported by a vast community of fans. But if your project requires hardware options that don’t exist on the Pi, then it’s time to shop for a new SBC (single board computer).
Keep in mind that the Raspberry Pi has a massive fan community and outstanding software support. This isn’t the case with alternative SBCs, which have smaller fan communities and may lose support for software like Kodi as the world moves on to bigger and better SBCs. If you’re a beginner who’s already overwhelmed by the task of setting up an SBC, it may be better to start with a Raspberry Pi.
If you’re down for the challenge or are a seasoned Pi user who has ideas for a bigger project, however, read on.
