With the recent announcement, let's review the improvements and where it can best be deployed.

I'm considering swapping out my full RPI3B+ running OctoPi.

I just ordered two of these, which is no easy feat as everyone limits your purchase to one item. So I'd certainly consider doing a video and article about them!

I'm lazy, I just bought one, with power, SD card and cable 🙂

I would certainly be interested in you making a video about them.

Ya...  I tried to get two but was forced to get one.  It's on the way.  Intend to use it to replace a Teensy 4.0 in an RC plane project (If I can???????).  Looking forward to a video now. 😀

I'm very tempted to get one, but I'm still waiting to buy myself the Pico and Zero! I keep putting off buying them. It might be worth just picking up the Pi Zero 2 W as they'll probably go out of stock before too long.

If you get the Zero 2 W, you won't need the Zero W as the 2 W subsumes the first version.

Yes, I meant that I was supposed to pick up the Pico and Zero W before the Zero W 2 came out. I just forgot..... Doh.

Well, there you go, you just saved yourself the (old) price of a Zero W; well done that man 🙂

For those who use Abra (Montreal) this is the reply I received:

"We are told that no stock will be available anywhere, until end of december.

It is likely to be pushed back until January.

So, get 'em while they're hot folks!
