    Yep I'm definitely interest in getting one and seeing what it is capable of.

    I'm hoping to find one locally that is set up and to actually see it working first.

    I have been having a great time even with the memory limitations of the pi 3 B+ model; this is great news, a pi with up to 4BG of memory ... nice indeed. I don't have a 4K TV and probably won't for quite a while but for those who do have such hardware this sounds real good.

    I'll be watching the Australian web site where I purchased my current 3 R-Pi devices like a hawk for these units to become available. Coming soon but can be ordered now ... 2 units paid for and on back order here now.

    Looks interesting. I wonder how well the MythTV frontend will run on it. It may replace my current Myth system down the road which draws 100 watts and requires a fan in the cabinet.

    It would cost more, but I'd like to see a SATA port or an m.2 slot. Having an SSD and being able to actually TRIM would be nice.

    SATA has been heavily requested by the Pi community, but still on the wish list. Other than cost, I wonder if there are other reasons.

    Hi,

    Does anyone know when the Ubuntu Mate or Server OS will work also on Raspberry Pi 4?
    For the moment any iso image I've tried, none of the are booting. Only the Raspbian OS.

    Cheers,
    Dan

    Any update on this? There are some custom kernels out there that boot on the Pi4 (even with all 4GB RAM enabled), but nothing official.

    Cost is absolutely critical for the raspberry pi. Remember, the primary goal is to provide schools, with fixed budgets, small, hackable, computers. The price is #1 consideration.

    There are competing SBCs which have SATA for $10-$30 more. Check out the Rock64 and RockPro64 and Odroid-N2 for some ideas. There are others too.

    Here's hoping they correct the r-pi v4 power plug problem and CPU cooling issues ASAP. I haven't seen any updates other than recognition of the issues.
    Not all USB-c power plugs work in the pi4. The port has an up/down, which shouldn't happen with any USB-c plug.
    The CPU cooling problem causes throttling to manage thermal issues. Looks like a partial fix is available.
