Come to me with 'problems' and I'll help you find solutions"

What problems have you heard about? If you can be specific, it might be easier for informed people to refute or confirm.

Personally, the only problem I'm aware of is the cost, relative to the need for 8GB memory.

Yes, lack of availability ;-)

Avoid them at all costs so there will be more for me to use.

Of coarse there are problem with the RPi just as there are with any Macbook or Lenovo laptop.

I have encountered none on my RPi4-8gb however.
