It would be nice if you could survey the market for the many NVME (I am not sure of names) HATS and memory boards. This should include cases that work with these additions, and all the connectors and GPIO pins should still be available.

Sure you can learn to be a programmer, it will take the same amount of time for me to learn to be a Doctor.

That's actually not a bad idea, I'm curious to try a few of those myself.  I keep seeing announcements of new boards as well.

Thanks for suggesting it, Ron!

@dronebot-workshop I saw one this morning from Pineberry, it was a top hat and I think they sell a bottom hat as well. The reviewer pointed out that there was no ventilation holes, and no cable pass through for the camera. Also the standard case did not fit. There is a good chance Pineberry will address those issues in the near future I think. This was by Jeff Geerling.

Explaining Computers reviewed the bottom HAT and did some performance tests. Very revealing in a good way!

@dronebot-workshop I would buy one right now, but I expect they will bring out a Pi500. It will have NVME memory and maybe some more options. That will become my Pi dev computer.

@dronebot-workshop I just got an email from Cytron, this board fixes the shortcomings of the Pineberry I think. I have bought some of their products from Canadian suppliers and they are of excellent quality. I would buy this if I was not waiting for the Pi500 that surely will be announced later this year.

OR 3D print a case and buy good quality (what I have now is cheap) Logitec wireless mouse and keyboard (I already have a 15.6" HDMI screen) I am still a noob when it comes to 3D printing so I am reluctant to take that on while I have other stuff I can work on, maybe someone in the group can come up with the 3D files?
