The Raspberry Pi 4 2GB has had its price drop to $35

That's around £34 including VAT.

Seems odd to not decrease the 4GB model? This does make it tempting though. Always wanted to play around with one. Especially since I'm learning python which is the language they use.

Price dropped to $43(about 33 british pounds according to google) so for us its a better deal. BUT you NEED a new power supply as the ones that are available for previous models don't supply enough amps to run it. So it's another $10 for that. Which means its basically the same price as the standalone Pi 4 before the price cut
But yeah at least you save $10 overall.

I need to get me one of these things. I *really* need an Octoprint setup in the worst way now that I have a 3D printer. One of these toys, with a webcam attached so I can remotely monitor my prints on my phone, and I'll be happy!

Yeah, Octoprint is great for remote printing, and for checking the print's progress. After all, you can's stay beside the printer all of the time.

Is noise an issue with the Ender 5? The stock Electronics for the Ender 3 Pro weren't great. Very noisy.

Oh yes. The stock PSU fan is *very* loud, as is the stock board / stepper drivers. A silent board will solve the motor noise, but from what I'm told, even good Meanwell PSUs have a decently loud fan. If my PSU replacement ever clears Canadian Customs (grrrrr), I hope to find out just how much of a difference swapping the PSU makes.
