Windows runs like s**t on arm devices, even on the best qualcomm chips, wouldn't bother.

Yes to the 2nd, several ways of doing that.
h.265 decode.. finally

Zoneminder used to be a way to do that. It’s worth a look if it’s still around.
Until the 4GB model becomes available I think I'll hold out. Having 4 times the RAM of the 3B model is awesome.

They had some 4Gb ones in this morning, 74 were left when I looked, seem to have sold out since! Assuming there are no major hardware bugs, the Pi 4 4Gb looks to be the Pi of dreams! Should be usable as a basic desktop PC and for development work now.
You're not wrong. Retro Pie and media centres will surely fly too.

Totally disagree it can be a full desktop replacement whilst still relying on SD cards for storage. Much more sensible in the £105 package to have an eMMC with Raspbian pre-loaded and then let people expand it with their own SD card.

After all 32GB eMMCs are $15 to buy, probably much less for rPi buying them in bulk. I can't help but feel that the SD card is a carry over from the days when flash memory was much more expensive and relying on them exclusively - or at least not offering an eMMC version for £10 more - is a mistake if you are otherwise speccing it like a budget desktop.

After all 99% of people are used to buying a computer that you can just plug in, turn on and get *something*. Having to have a second computer to create the image, or remember/understand why you need to buy a pre-loaded SD card, is just a barrier to moving beyond enthusiasts.

Can anyone recommend a good chassis kit for a pi robot? (my son and I built the pihut camjam cardboard box one but it's flimsy)
Still useless,
if I wanted a mini computer there are hundreds of similar SBCs out there

all I needed was a standard 256byte fifo to pass data through, they bolt on every type of interface except the simplest
Raspberry Pi noob here!

I’ve seen comments in the past about making a retro games console from one of these. What else would I need apart from this Raspberry Pi 4 to do that and is it easy enough for a complete beginner?
I preordered the 4GB version and might get it, but I'm having second thoughts comparing it to this:

amazon.es/CHU…BDY

Once you add up the cost of the raspberry board, microsd, power adapter, possibly a heatsink (the new model runs hot, not to the point of worrying but a cheap heatsink from china will probably help), case... We probably are talking around £80. I prefer paying an extra £40 and be able to run an x86 OS, 2d steam games, have a windows licence, etc.

Retropie is what you want. Just google that. It’s a front end and a whole load of emulators that you can just download and flash to an SD card. Just add roms (games) and plug in a couple of controllers. Done.
Remember when HUKD used to contain deals? RRP isn't a deal.

Pimorini are shipping the 4GB next week and are taking pre-orders for it. PiHut don't seem to allow pre-ordering so I'm waiting on Pimorini myself.

I have a few micro to full size HDMI adaptors lying around and I might even have a 3 amp power supply knocking about somewhere. Not the cheapest option if you need to buy all of the peripheral bits to get it going but this board will have great community support and versatility as the earlier models do.

I'm glad you edited that comment to make less sense at what you were disagreeing to

The bottleneck I find for desktop replacement is storage medium as no SSd. Wish they had provided 2 extra usbC port instead of usb2

Horses for courses. Pi's were supposed to be for hacking around with and learning computing on first and foremost.
Anybody had delivery of the 4gb version from CPC? Mine is still showing as backordered.
