Hi Guys,

Thank you both:  Your help is much appreciated.

One of the neighbours dropped this on me this afternoon.  I look after 
his computer, he has bought an Rpi 3+ from RS Components for his 
nephew as a Christmas gift and we were discussing it.  I had to admit 
that whilst I run Linux, I had no Idea about the Rpi.

Comments inline.

I've no Idea either other than that is how RS describe it.
I assume that a Q4OS is a downloaded image file.

I understand from what I've read that this version of ARM is a four 
core 64 bit cpu running at 1.2Ghz.  It does say that it has 1Gb ram 
on board.
