Just found these in a shoebox when cleaning. Are they even relevant anymore?

Raspberry Pi 3b 1gb and 4b 4gb. Is there anything that these can actually be used for or are they garbage?

    You could make a little file storage server for your home with them.
    Realistically these are never worth anything more than what you're willing to invest in them. If you don't have a use before you buy, you probably won't have one afterwards.
    I'll buy them from you for 5 bucks each.

            Good idea, thanks, but while that would protect me from ending up in the archive, I wouldn't want to show my cards to anons here. All it takes is one motivated anon to frick my real email forever.

            I'll get you next time, Randall.

            I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids!

    Give them to me if you think they are garbage. What kind of question is this? Don't tell me you don't know how to code in assembly/logic gate?

    I use one to host an offsite backup at my parents' house.
    It's slow, the backup "drive" is a thumbdrive, but it works, so good enough

      replace the thumbdrive regularly or you will be better off just doing M disk. those thumb drives suck shit and are not meant to last long, they are designed around file transport over a short time.

        Nope.
        I have a RPI 4B 8GB running Gentoo with LXQt. Admittedly it's on a SATA3-over-USB3 SSD, but encrypted so it's not as fast as it can be. It's so fast that I can play games and watch movies without issues. The only things that are ever slow on it is Firefox, Thundebird and Chromium.

    if I had one right now, I'd plug my hdd into it and run jellyfin off of it
    a next step would be turning it into a NAS

    i'd argue even the new raspberry pies are useless.

    you can get mini pcs with better specs for the same price, as well as breakout GPIO boards.

    I have 3 of them myself and having Pihole is nice to have on my wifi. OMV is great too.

    I currently have 7 Raspberry in use. Unluckily for you, you missed the window of opportunity to sell them at 200% markup during the covid era. Now they're not worth much any longer because 5 is out.

    They were initially intended for tinkerers. People who want to build shit using GPIO. They are now mainstream and mainstream users want the tinkerers to pre-roll solutions for them. That's not what they are for. They are for YOU to make shit with. Go fricking make something.

    I have one in my pc case that runs a small screen to monitor the pcs temps etc when it's running and also runs a pihole and shares a hard drive when the pc is off and a few other services like a torrent client and a music server etc, it's like a tiny little mini home server and it's been reliable as frick for years and just h

    I have an orange pi 3 zero but I don't know what to do with it, I thought I would use it as a Nas but it keeps crashing for no reason. I don't like retro games so it's just a paperweight
