I have bought the ‘SMART HOME with Raspberry Pi, ESP32, and ESP8266’ e-book and I’m thinking about buying a Raspberry Pi board to follow the course exercises. Would a Raspberry Pi 4B with 2Gb of RAM suffice? Models with 8Gb and 4Gb are more expensive, and I wonder if I really need them (not only for the course, but for future usage as well). If I am not planning to perform complex multitasking things, dual-screen 4K video, etc., won’t a 2Gb board be good enough?
I think you’ll be fine with the 2G version. (However, I’m not totally sure as I haven’t tested it).
If the difference between the 2G and 4G is significant, I think you can go well with the 2G version. If not, the 4G will be faster for most tasks.
Yes, the difference is significant for me (the 4Gb board is 27,5% more expensive than the 2Gb one); that’s why I’m asking. Of course I wouldn’t buy a 2G board if I thought it would run short of resources every time I want to use it, but if it will do for most applications, I would rather spend less money.
