The RPi3 looks like an impressive upgrade from the RPi2. Not sure if it's enough to make me want to use it for browser video though. The RPi2 is just too painful to make the RPi3 look appealing. I would like to see an option for a faster disk drive, like an NVMe connector. It would probably really push up the price though.

I considered using the RPi2 as a firewall/router. The lack of gigabit speeds on the LAN or USB ports made me look elsewhere. Not that I need those speeds for internet right now but I still had concerns over the USB to LAN adapter performance and overall throughput. It would do in a pinch.

In the meantime, it's an interesting hobby box.
