This question was asked/answered one too many times, but still, need advice.
Most of the topics are about RPi, but I would like to avoid it. RPi4 is around 100 pounds and I would rather spend those Benjamins on an SSD.
At the moment I have three options:
- I have an old full tower PC which is collecting dust at the moment. It is AMD 32bit CPU (A-10 or something like it, can’t remember but it is old).
- I have bought ACEPC T11 Windows 10 Pro Mini PC and it’s small form factor is very attractive. Also has 64GB eMMC + a slot for 2.5" drive for expansion.
- Buy RPi4 + SSD + SD + case and work on it.
Also, if you will point to any of those, could you kindly tell me OS needed (Debian,Ubuntu, WIN+VM etc.) and where to start
I will appreciate every opinion.
