Available now from RS Components, the Raspberry Pi Model A+ is a tiny computer board that is up and running when a keyboard, mouse, display, PSU and MicroSD card with installed OS are added. It is a miniature ARM-based PC which can run many of the applications that normally require a desktop PC, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. Raspberry Pi Model A+ also plays high-definition video. The model A+ features lower power consumption, better audio performance and a 40-pin GPIO connector amongst other improvements over the earlier model A. It is also even smaller! Raspberry Pi is an Open-Source product designed to be supported by Internet-based user forums, says the company.
