    Haha! It is actually far newer than my current workstation. I didn't think of that!

    It's a great little bit of kit for the $$, I'm loving it.

    My son is using the Pi 400 to learn python, bought the kit so it came with the books etc.
    I had a play, didn't really need it seeing I had the standard Pi 4, so I gave it to him.

    Funny thing is my tuner is trying out a Powertune Digital Dash after I showed them to him, it's actually running a Pi, so he's trying to get it to fully talk to the stock ECU.
    Pi's are great little SOC's.

    I'm still looking for a reason to justify buying one. Loved the idea since the first Pi came out but they seem much more user friendly now which is great.

    Anyone streamed games from another PC to one??

    They're amazing. As a technology for everything from retro gaming reboots to automotive use, they're everywhere now. SoC and FPGA has literally taken the world by storm and dropped prices accordingly as the technology is now off the shelf and readily available.

    I've streamed movies via Kodi, never streamed games however. I'll take a look and see what there is. If there is anything?

    Did you see the android ports for the Pi, they actually work surprisingly well.

    I haven't yet. I've been spending time working and between work downloading and tweaking software for the Pi.

    Once I'm tired of Raspbian I have a number of things to try, including Amibian, I'll check out Android also. I need more CF cards...

    Quite a few of the streaming apps support native (e.g. Linux, not android) clients on RPi3 and upwards. I've personally used Parsec for it in the past and performance was fine.

    Ooooh. Fluid actually send me a link to Parsec also.

    Did it introduce screen tearing at all?

    I found whenever I connect the laptop to TV via HDMI I inevitably get it. Interestingly when using Miracast to do similar via the Xbox, no such issue (but it's a bigger head f). Not sure if it's due to being an older Intel CPU or if it uses the inbuilt AMD GPU that might be causing it all...(i7 6500U and AMD M360)

    I do recall any issues with tearing.. Was streaming from a Vega64 at the time.

    Not really , I have sent 3 x 10900k's back to Intel and been paid up so obviously the fault was nothing to do with me
    Shit happens :Pirate:
    BTW Intel never asked me for a receipt or even the box they came in .
    They will just agree on a market price with you .
    Intel are up there with Evga with their very good customer service .
    Unlike Asus who are shite but they do make the best motherboards .
