Arrow.com currently has the Raspberry Pi 3 for $34.99 but they have a 20% coupon that actually works on the raspberry pi's. Coupon code is HOLIDAY.

Price = $34.99 - 20%($7) = $27.99 + tax

Three post in this thread ask what are these used for. I guess people don't know what Google or You Tube is either.

1) Media.

You can build a cheap Network Attached Storage (NAS). You can have that NAS do several things like download content or stream to other devices. When it was a single core device it was hard to do these things but now that it's multi-core it handles these task with ease especially since the GPU doesn't have to render anything.

You can also back up important files on your laptop, desktop or smartphone.

2) 8-16 bit, 80's/90's Arcade game machine.

As mentioned playing 32 bit games on these is a little challenging and best left to x86 builds IMHO for now. But you can play Intellivision, Atari 2600/5200, Colecovision, Sega Master System, Genesis, NES and SNES games via Retropie. If you are too young to remember these games and systems you might wanna skip this.

3) Internet of Things

It can be a VPN server, a modem/gateway/router with some media functions, security camera server, control smart home devices, even host your own web site.

All this stuff is covered on the official RPi forum, Reddit, etc. So I'm not sure why people are asking what to do with these things, sky is pretty much the limit and lots of things have been tried already so just put it in Google or Start Page if your paranoid and search for it.

Yes, best one you can get for PiHole.

You need a memory card and a power supply and you should be all set.

Fun fact: you can use an RPi as an AirPlay server (audio only). Works very reliably.

For PiHole even a $5 Pi Zero W will work.
