The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B was introduced to the public this week as the successor of one of the best computers on the market. The second edition of the Raspberry Pi is more powerful, yet keeps the low price-point. It’s a budget miniature computer which you can use for whatever you want. The new model is not limited by speed, like the previous model was, as it comes with a 900 Mhz quad core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU.
The Raspberry Pi is the most popular miniature computer you can find and with the launch of the second generation, people should get even more interested in the small little gadget. Besides the powerful, speedy chipset, you get 1GB LPDDR2 RAM and complete compatibility with the previous Raspberry Pi model. The performance has been improved by 6 times compared to its predecessor. The Raspberry Pi 2 is priced at $35, which is amazing for a high-end computer that almost fits in your pocket.
What’s not clear is whether Windows 10 will be included in the build of the Raspberry Pi 2, but most people are sure that it will. The details aren’t too clear, but from what we know, Windows 10 for the Raspberry Pi 2 will be free of charge to makers, which is good news indeed. If you’re into learning how to make a computer from scratch, the Raspberry Pi is surely one of your favorite picks. The second edition of the Raspberry Pi should be commercially available already, although it seems to be out of stock at the moment.
The Raspberry Pi 2 is a computer board that allows users to customize the rest of the system and tie it to a monitor and other peripherals they might need. The idea behind the Raspberry Pi and its successor is to popularize learning about hardware and how computers work, because we are in the age of technology, that’s for sure. Since the computer board is currently out of stock, you might have to wait until the 20th for a re-stock so that you can order your cheap gadget and have fun with it.
