    A new project needs a small fulfilment station: a computer to run Chrome to access the admin area of a website, a USB thermal label printer for printing postage labels, a USB laser printer for printing dispatch notes, and a USB scanner for scanning returns.

    Normally I dig out an old pc for such a thing but my stocks have run out. Which leaves me with the question, do I buy an old SFF Dell on eBay, or is there a better way of doing it now? Something Pi based, or are there others I'm not aware of?

    Pi sounds like an ideal solution here, drivers permitting!

    Pi indeed. Especially if you are looking to have something portable. But why should the browser be chrome ?
