re: [Total Cost of Ownership needed]

Interesting, well

Raspberry Pi :- 40$
SD Card :- 4$
Wifi dongle:- 5$


Wifi dongle:- 5$ (optional) ;)

TCO should include installation and power consumption costs.

also hourly rate of the person installing and running that thing

That's a great advantage comparing to remote Servers or cloud services if you live in poor internet connection areas. Having a local server outside your machine that let's you practice the work flow of uploading, installing, updating an app or whatever project you have, and test it, is really nice.


Nice article, but it ain't for life!
The SD will almost certainly die sooner or later, the actual Pi might last a very long time though, maybe $100 over your lifetime (assuming your Pi just keeps going)
