Create a Raspberry Pi Desktop PC

Can you use a Raspberry Pi 3 to replace your desktop PC? 

Yes, with the power of the Raspberry Pi 3 you can do everything you expect a basic computer to do: Browse the internet, write documents, create spreadsheets, draw, make presentations play games and more! While it will not be as powerful as your standard desktop, you can perform all of the basic functions of a desktop at a fraction of the cost and use it as an excellent second machine.

Using the pre-loaded operating system on the Raspberry Pi along with a free office suite such as LibreOffice you can be ready to go in no time. LibreOffice is a free office suite that provides the same functionality as Microsoft Office. A standard install of LibreOffice provides you with applications such as: Writer (word processor), Calc (spreadsheets), Base (database), Impress (Presentation), Draw (Illustration)
