Raspberry PI Board - 3 Model B
**** Model B 1Gb Ram, 1200 Mhz Quad Core ****
This is the Model Raspberry Pi just released 29/2/2016
Created by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the Raspberry Pi is an open-source, Linux based, credit card sizedcomputer board. The Pi is an exciting and accessible means of improving computing and programming skills for people of all ages. By connecting to your TV or monitor and a keyboard, and with the right programming, the Pi can do many things that a desktop computer can do such as surf the internet and play video. The Pi is also great for those innovative projects that you want to try out - newer models are ideal for Internet of Things projects due to their processing power. With Pi 3, Wireless LAN and Bluetooth Low Energy are on-board too.
Just add a keyboard, mouse, display, power supply, micro SD card with installed Linux Distribution and you'll have a fully fledged computer that can run applications from word processors and spreadsheets to games.

The CPU is one and a half times faster than its predecessor, the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. And, oh, that sweet, glorious on-board wireless connectivity that Raspberry Pi fans have desired for so long.
The price for one Raspberry Pi 3 is a few dollars more expensive than Pi 2 Model B.
You will also need to get a new power supply for the Pi 3 since it has a higher power consumption.
If you order the Pi 3 today, you should expect to receive the unit by next week.
It is selling fairly quickly so you may have to wait for the next shipment if you miss the boat this time.
To ‘Get Started’ with your new Raspberry Pi 2 download the latest version of their ‘Out of the Box’ Software. (not included)
