I love the RPi but have always felt that RAM was the limiting factor for them being useful for Desktop/GUI use. Now that the RPi 4 offers options of 2/4GB (as well as the base 1GB) I am wondering if its enough to make it a viable option as a daily machine for simple, "average person" type stuff?
By "viable" I really mean "usable". I am wondering if it is a viable option for someone doing generic stuff like web browsing (not an excessive amount of tabs but multiple tabs, maybe a couple extensions for ad blocking), email, some media (youtube, not anything extreme) and maybe some light document work in something like LibreOffice.
To expand on this...and its a bit intangible...there is a place in computer usage where you go from an acceptable wait (for booting, loading, closing, etc.) to most users either forcing something closed, losing patience or simply giving up/not using it. Its that "line" I am wondering if the RPi 4 is able to not cross for the average person.
