I hate a whooping 8GB of RAM. The RAM keeps screaming 'Whoop!' all night and keeps me up. I prefer that one with a whopping 8GB.

I had no idea there were plans to release an 8GB version.

I do wonder what the point is, though. Seems to me that the RPi4 is a suitable desktop replacement if you aren't married to Windows and are only doing basic office tasks (word, spreadsheet, social media, browsing, etc) and at that point, 4GB should be plenty.

For anyone getting their first Pi, unless you know what you're doing and specially need all that ram then just get the 2gb model.

and this is not a deal at all

As someone who uses Linux heavily every day, I can say 4GB of RAM is not enough for my basic needs. If your needs are more basic, great. Maybe you can get by with 4GB. But there's no way I'm the only person who needs a minimum of 8GB.

If you're using this as a desktop replacement then 8GB makes sense but most people use a Pi for much more limited tasks where the extra memory doesn't really help.

Hopefully for those who do want one they've been making these for a while and we don't see a repeat of the 4GB mess.

I'm getting the impressions you're projecting your desktop Linux usage onto a SBC Pi.

I'm guessing these will sell out in a few days. What are practical uses for 8gb other than multiple tab browsing and video streaming?

Curious if you think 8gb is warranted for a Pi running as a NAS and PiHole.

I was planning to get the 4gb but $20 isn't a huge diff.
