I’m looking for something that I can use to run a VLC media player to play various video files in multiple formats, as well as something that can hold emulators and roms for 3rd and 4th generation consoles.
The Raspberry Pi seems like a good bet, I’m looking at their new model for $35 which has 4 USB ports and a faster processor with more RAM. I’m assuming I’d need 4 USB ports since at least 1 will be the wifi dongle, then another for the keyboard/mouse combo, then a third for a removable USB stick to transfer movies.
Do you need to know a lot about computers to get it up and running, or is someone who is just computer literate with windows able to make it work? Like I said, I don’t need a lot of programs. I think VLC media player and Roms/emulators would be sufficient.
