We have all been tempted with the CM3 upgrade, I'm sure.
So when that day comes, what do we do with the "old" CM1?
Is there a REALLY bare version of the Lite Slice, that we can recycle the CM1 into?
Any further ideas, drop them below...
great idea ! but I doubt it will happen
Well there is the Slice Lite kit which is currently available at Pimeroni
Currently of course that comes with the compute module, but I think there's no reason we couldn't sell the board without the CM if you were sure...
That would be great Gordon.Perhaps bundle a Slice board (as per the slice light) with the CM3 as a package.That could be paid for now and all shipped together when the CM3 is available.That would also help out with the cashflow to go towards the large order required for the bulk purchase of CM3s?
good idea, but not for me. I already have slice lite (aka naked slice) and it came with a CM1!! So I will end up with two CM1s up for grabs
So you now need to buy 2 further completely naked Slices
Or I saw a "super computer" made from stacking CM1s.Maybe we should all join up to make the next HAL ("Hello Dave"!)
Should we consider option(s) that in some way donates CM1 boards back into schools etc??
My understanding is that the CM1 (and CM3) board are intended for use in products for consumers, i.e. the smart Computer Module that could be plugged into a designers board that would form the thinking bit in the total product, such as the Slice! I'm not sure such a board exists for school/educational use?
What was the outcome of the discussion at Pimoroni for Slice Light kit without the CM1, Gordon?
We could definitely sell the Slice Lite kit without the CM1, but we'll just have to wait for CM3 to be released
Cool, put me down for a Slice Super-Lite kit with CM3 bundle!Again the offer of pre-pay still stands for the package.Thank you Gordon

would definitely do this. Slice Lite with no CM and a CM3 for existing slice. I'd preorder this package
