The Raspberry Pi 4 2GB has had its price drop to $35

The Raspberry Pi will soon celebrate its eighth birthday, and to celebrate, the Raspberry Pi Foundation plans to decrease the price of its 2GB Raspberry Pi from $45 to $35, a price reduction of over 22%. 

This change is pricing comes thanks to falling DRAM prices, making the 2GB Raspberry Pi 4 cost as little as the Foundation's 1GB model. Moving forward, the 1GB version of the Raspberry Pi 4 will continue to be produced for industrial and commercial customers for its current price of $35. Consumers are expected to transition to 2GB products, given their identical pricing and the 2GB model's larger memory capacity. 

When compared to 2012';s original Raspberry Pi, the Raspberry Pi 4 offers 40x the CPU performance, 8x the memory capacity, 10x the I/0 Bandwidth and support for dual-band wireless technology. These higher specifications come despite the Raspberry Pi 4 2GB's starting price of $35, which is the same price as the original Raspberry Pi computer. 

Sadly, this DRAM related price cut doesn't extend to the Raspberry Pi 4's 4GB model, which remains at its standard retail price of $55.

Seems odd to not decrease the 4GB model? This does make it tempting though. Always wanted to play around with one. Especially since I'm learning python which is the language they use.Quote

Price dropped to $43(about 33 british pounds according to google) so for us its a better deal. BUT you NEED a new power supply as the ones that are available for previous models don't supply enough amps to run it. So it's another $10 for that. Which means its basically the same price as the standalone Pi 4 before the price cut
But yeah at least you save $10 overall.Quote

I need to get me one of these things. I *really* need an Octoprint setup in the worst way now that I have a 3D printer. One of these toys, with a webcam attached so I can remotely monitor my prints on my phone, and I'll be happy!Quote

Yeah, Octoprint is great for remote printing, and for checking the print's progress. After all, you can's stay beside the printer all of the time.

Is noise an issue with the Ender 5? The stock Electronics for the Ender 3 Pro weren't great. Very noisy.Quote
