Not one of these specifically but I do have half a dozen Pi's with an assortment of interface cards so I can test the Scratch work I do for the foundation

On a perfectly ordinary iMac, we see here a Smalltalk running a simulation of a Smalltalk VM and a VM (vmware in this case) running another OS in which is running another Smalltalk running a Smalltalk VM which is being simulated for another type of cpu entirely.
It's all a bit more sophisticated than when I started doing this stuff on ARM1 based machines back in 1987....

Clearly we now have a candidate for the spy of the next version of the Pi - a 48 core ARM v8 (that's the 64 bit architecture) SoC.
What - you think it might be a bit too expensive to make a $35 board possible? Dang.
So I guess the dual version - that's 96 cores - is probably out too.
Cavium's Thunder line of chips will offer up to 48 cores per SOC, with versions tuned to particular workloads

In a new RPi model, I'd personally like to see built in wifi and/or more USB ports.

An skilled sheet metal working acquaintance of mine has launched a new website to sell his metal motorcycle fenders (or mudguards to us Brits). Even if you're not in the market for such a fender the sheer quality of the site is a delight in this era of ludicrous over-bling. And the video if how he makes the fenders is fascinating too.
