What kinds of things were you wanting to do with it?

I have various Raspberry PIs (a couple of Zeros and others from the
2/3 series). The biggest performance issue I've had with them is block
device I/O. In particular, the SD card is dog-slow, which is bad
because that's usually the main filesystem. USB 3 is better, but still
nothing near a good SATA drive.

So while RPis are fine for dedicated/embedded applications (generally,
non-real-time ones that require a lot of CPU), they aren't really
suitable for, e.g., a desktop Linux system you can put in your pocket.
