Was fishing around for a Pi for a friend and came across this deal. Not sure how long its gonna last for but seems pretty solid. 25% off list price so I jumped on it.

More info:

Raspberry Pi 4 Model B is the latest product in the popular Raspberry Pi range of computers. It offers ground-breaking increases in processor speed, multimedia performance, memory, and connectivity compared to the prior-generation Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, while retaining backwards compatibility and similar power consumption. For the end user, Raspberry Pi 4 Model B provides desktop performance comparable to entry-level x86 PC systems.

This product's key features include a high-performance 64-bit quad-core processor, dual-display support at resolutions up to 4K via a pair of micro-HDMI ports, hardware video decode at up to 4Kp60, up to 4GB of RAM, dual-band 2.4/5.0 GHz wireless LAN, Bluetooth 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, and PoE capability (via a separate PoE HAT add-on).

The dual-band wireless LAN and Bluetooth have modular compliance certification, allowing the board to be designed into end products with significantly reduced compliance testing, improving both cost and time to market.

So basically, its like a Fire TV or something? Like a rooted one?

Where is the HDMI port though? How do you connect it to your TV?

What else do "ya'll [] use these for?" as another sd'er put it? I, too, have been seeing these for years, these Rasberry Pi's, do they have the Android OS on them already? What do people use them for?
Same things you would use a dedicated computer for, except it's a lot smaller and takes a lot less power.

It's a niche product for computer hobbyists. Probably falls in the category of "if you have to ask, then you probably don't need it."

Is the 2GB good enough to run game emulators?
Yes with the huge emulation community behind these pi set ups you'd have no problems getting emulation set up . Don't expect to emulation later 3d systems like Dreamcast ,etc though . But I'd say anything ps1 and back you should be able to do almost flawlessly

I am wanting to run something like MAME to emulate some old early 80's arcade games, and would like to hook up to a free old CRT TV, maybe build some sort of thing that looks like an old arcade game I would have played back in the 80's.

This looks like a good deal, but it doesn't appear to come with any cables that would be necessary to use it. How much $$ does it cost for all the required cables for the raspberry pi? Would I be better off buying a ~$50 Android set top box and installing mame4droid to do something like this, since the set top boxes come with the cables they need?

I've never really looked into using Raspberry PI, but I thought I would ask. Thanks!
The raspberry pi uses a standard USB type c or micro USB on older models (typical cell phone charger ) and a HDMI cable for the hookup you could get both those for less than 12 bucks on Amazon probably. In your case you're wanting to use an older crt ehh an HDMI wouldn't suffice because crt televisions don't have HDMI most have composite or s video . Therefore you'd need some type of HDMI to composite adapter or something would would add to the cost . It's plenty of tutorial videos on YouTube if how to set up a pi to be an emulation hub for retro games though

There are two micro-HDMI ports on the side where the USB C power port is located. An adapter is needed to convert the micro HDMI to full size HDMI to plug into display.

These die in about a year. No point on using them! Mine died in 7months. Won't reboot. Tried everything on YouTube but no success. Very disappointed.
You didn't have this model for 7 months. It was released in June.

Do note not all "typical cell phone chargers" are alike. Pi before 4 (i.e. 3 or 3B+) require 2.5A (2.5A x 5VDC= 12.5W) of power. Most legacy older phone USB wall-wart offer 1A-2.1A. A tablet USB wall-wart may go to 2.4A, but few peak at 2.5A. Using a tablet 2.4A and quality micro USB cable less than 6" for most applications should work, but as you add devices (fan, touchscreen, SNES controllers) you might be pushing it.
THIS is a Pi4 which needs 3A (3A x 5VDC = 15W) via USB-C, your likely NOT going to have a USB WW from an old cellphone that will work.
Reguardless, Its amazing what these can do with so little power as most HTPC will need at least 45W and game console considerably more.

Yep I can run most PS1 and back items on my pi 3. The 4 is much faster and has that 4GB ram option.

Just as a simple test I was able to play 6 YT tabs on HD without problems on the 4. The 3 struggles with 1.

I have three, 2 are doing Kodi and Emulation Station with some wireless controllers.

One is doing pi hole and some automation work. These are all 3 B's not 4's but run damn well.

I had one of them at work replacing a wyse terminal using both Horizon view and Cirtix workspace, and they work better than wyse terminals for that.

My Raspberry Pi is still going strong after 3+ years of use.

Yes. The rasp pi 3 was good enough for original PlayStation. This should be better. If you really just want it for game emulation it would be easier and cheaper to look for a PlayStation classic and mod that. I think it actually performs a bit better as well.
