I have a new true love, and she is called Raspberry Pi 4.
The Raspberry Pi 4 is a new standard to computing fun. I couldnt put it down.
The specs and description claim it is faster than the RPi3s,
but from the very first power up, I just kept repeating WOW.
She does a lot of things faster.
Refer to the attached table for comparative testing data, and the video for the live demonstration.

Analysis and test results.
My test was to compare some imaging and LAN task speeds between the RPi3B and the RPi4 2Gb,
and then a coup de gras: facial recognition.
I got side tracked for awhile on the debate of air cooling, fans, and heatsinks.
My final analysis is RPi4 runs cooler than RPi3. Because iRPI4 is faster, you'll ask it to do more, which makes it run warm.
If the RPi 4 is stuck into a small, nearly sealed enclosure, it will get hot. as does everything else in this world.
A 12 minute video of the highlights of the testing and the comparative performance
of Raspberry Pi 4 to Raspberry Pi 3B is posted on You Tube: https://youtu.be/E2TPfEmakVA
