#1 Turing Pi

I received an email that I can pre-order/reserve a Turing Pi V1 board. Get it or wait for V2?

I would wait for V2 -even though I have a code that will save me 5% in purchase. Jeff Geerling has pointed out some shortcomings (e.g. price due to all needed onboard hardware x7; CPU speed limited to 1200 MHz due to interface) that are hopefully overcome with V2. V2 uses the improved Compute Model 4 (CM4) -and then just four instead of seven- and has much improved cooling. In the meantime you can play with the Compute Model 4 I/O board model 4 that is only a third of the cost of the previous I/O boards and has much more possibilities, amongst them a PCIe x1 slot.

Good advice. I forgot the Turning Pi V1 did not support the Pi 4 compute modules

There is a company that makes CM4 to CM3 adapters, Gumstix

You can also buy them without Coral TPU ($75 vs $30....)
