    I looked at this a few months ago for similar reason and came away with it being an uneconomical choice because of the base Pi that you get needs to be expanded to be useful. It's not worth it. Get a micro pc, Lenovo or something.

    My nephew uses a Pi4 4GB running Raspbian for schoolwork and browsing and seems to be happy with it. It's connected to a 1080p screen so it's not having to work too hard and also runs Minecraft at a decent framerate.

    My daughter uses a Raspberry Pi in a robot car. She uses it for a couple of other things via virtual desktop, but not for schoolwork.
