Don't know if this topic is appropriate here, but here goes...
Just received a 'shiny new' Raspberry Pi 4+ and must say it is VERRRRRRRYYYYY fast.
The special HDMI cable was out of stock so I set the Pi up in 'headless' mode.
Updating the operating system was very swift.
Installing Node-RED was super quick and then updating to node-red@next was ultra FAST.
I've haven't done any benchmarks (yet) as I've been too busy playing.
Going to install piVPN on it later today and make it my vpn-server.
