I got the very first pi, 256 MB memory, 1 USB port, no ethernet. Realized I'm going to need to get a wireless dongle for scraping, and wondering if a non powered USB hub would work for two controllers and a keyboard/mouse dongle. Anyway, I see there is a specific download for RP1 on the retropie website, so I guess I have to make one myself?

For the price of the 3+ could you not upgrade?

I have a Rp2, happy with it, will get a p3 when I can afford it. For now, I wanted to get the very first one, even if it doesn't have ethernet and only one USB, so I ordered it on ebay and just arrived!
I like a challenge. I also like how it will be focused on all the retro computers and other systems I could not fit on my current build, until I get a bigger SD card. Looking at ordering two 64G cards, should be enough for video snaps too.

– Figured out I can install retropie and roms via virtualbox on my PC?
