I am convinced; some of my ideas can be a bit silly at times.
Well, a lot of it just comes down to the purpose of the system. One of the advantages of something like a RPi 400 is that it gives you access to a GPIO header for tinkering. But that's the thing with RPi's, they're designed for tinkering and everything else is less of a priority. Regular x86 desktops are much better suited to general tasks and productivity, unlike the RPi's.
I can't remember what I paid for my Model 3B+ but recently the chip shortage has affected stock supplies and prices big time when it comes to SBC's. I was on the lookout for a Maximite computer recently but of course they're out of stock. It's kind of a shitty time right now in the hobby computer space.
