First of all I am completely new to Raspberry Pi and Linux ....
I just have a couple of questions before I buy a Pi
Pi will be running 24/7 .
firstly I want to convert serial data consisting of only 5 integers every 5 seconds to Ethernet packets and send them out on the LAN.
Secondly I also want to use the Pi to have a couple of Hard drives attached as Network drives.
and Maybe also use the pi for streaming media to my TV.
Is the Pi 3 powerful enough to do all this please?
I'd appreciate your advice
