        I fell for it until the diagonal taskbar. 😀 And the whole time I was fuming because I bought an older Pi right before the 2 came out, which I bought too, kind of annoyed at the timing. Well played!

    I’ll wait until the C+ comes out, at the current rate of development of the RasPi this one will be out of date by midday. 😉

      I wait until raspberry pi model D comes out too.

      No – Important to wait for the C++ version to be released so it will work with the new WIN 11.1 version – soon to be released by Microsoft

    Alas for the date, having a Pi with on board 328P MCU would be a great match.

    Let me put my credit card away. I bought it hook, line, and sinker.

    The price is the same as the Pi 2 B
    However it uses the new nanoSD ZC cards. These are a dimunitive 7mm x 5mm and currently the only size available is 1TB (TeraByte) currently priced around £700.00 (GBP)

    I spotted it as an April Fools joke straight away, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a raspberry pi with lots more memory and even faster processors?

  15. 1 April 2015 at 2:04 pm

    I knew it was an April Fools joke, but a cruel one. I would love the ram & faster bus!

    Though it was a (good) joke, the spec was not implausible. I do hope something like this see the light of day sometime, even if it will be a bit higher priced.

    Fell hook line and sinker. The desire for more processing power, usb 3, and gigabit networking is very strong. I already dreamed up applications for the dream machine, multiple usb cameras, NAS to name just a few.
    What it has made do is to search for other boards ie the Parallella and consider using this to fill the gap.
