I installed Raspbian on two new Pi 2s tonight, one using NOOBS and one using NOOBS Lite. Both are using a Sandisk Ultra 8GB MicroSDHC UHS-I card (SDSDQUA-008G-UQ46A.)

Pros:
NOOBS: Faster installation (downloading the Raspbian image takes a long time.)
NOOBS Lite: Approx.10% more space available in the Raspbian root file system (7287176k vs 6581636k )

Do you like oreos or fig newtons? It totally depends on you and your needs. Get two SD cards and swap back and forth and make a decision for yourself. I have probably 10 computers running various flavours of linux and windows for my hobbie of getting more life out of computers. Some OS's just run better depending on the hardware.

So if you want to bitcoin mine using your RPi, go for it.
