Raspberry Pi


Aimed at the adventurous or the learning oriented, the Raspberry Pi provides an outstanding platform for the small-scale system or other project of your dreams.

Amazingly inexpensive. Outstanding for educational purposes. Strong community support

Potentially challenging setup. Demands knowledge of Linux. You get the performance you pay for

Raspberry Pi Model B Review


At $35, the Raspberry Pi is small and inexpensive but definitely requires some time and dedication to set up and use. It won't replace any desktop, laptop or tablet anytime soon, but it provides a great experience for anyone wanting to learn how...

Compact design, Very inexpensive, Supports multiple operating systems, Good educational tool

Low processing power, No Flash support on Debian "squeeze" operating system, Lacks integrated Wi-Fi

The Raspberry Pi Model B


Perhaps I'm a bit behind the times here, but for those of you who haven't gotten your hands on a Raspberry Pi Model B, well… get on it, son. If you have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about, then read on. I'm about to tell you about a credit card...

Raspberry Pi


Updated with video: A PC for under £30 - cheap, yes, but worth it?

Cheap as (digital) chips ; Excellent connectivity ; Relatively powerful graphics ; Extensive community support

Very sloooow CPU ; Not immediately accessible (but that’s part of the point)

Build quality is difficult to measure on a plain board, but at least the connectors seemed soldered securely. However, with our retail-purchased Raspberry Pi there was a slight quality control issue, in that the eight-pin P2 expansion header didn’t...

It's a fully functioning PC that's barely bigger than a credit card and costs less than a round of drinks – but what's Raspberry Pi really good for?

Ultra-cheap computing for the masses, Plenty of potential uses

Technical inclination essential

Raspberry Pi Model B+ review


An updated offering with more I/O and more compact design

Still low cost, smaller and more standard shape, updated I/O options, more USB ports, more memory

Upgrades could have been slightly bigger, performance could be slightly better

The Raspberry Pi Model B+ booted up first time and worked flawlessly from the get-go. Unlike the original, after it runs through its hardware detection and configuration, users are now greeted with a configuration menu as opposed to a list of commands,...

Review: Raspberry Pi (Model B)


An inspired, affordable means of encouraging a new generation of computing tinkerers – and all for less than the price of a console game

Raspberry Pi review


The Raspberry Pi is one of the most eagerly anticipated devices of the year, promising to deliver a low-cost platform for students to get to grips with programming. It has also sparked a huge amount of interest from tech enthusiasts.

Low cost, small size, built-in GPU supports 1080p video output

Restricted memory size, needs additional hardware and software to function

The Raspberry Pi is a miniature marvel that shows just how small and cheap you can make a working computer. However, the device could benefit from having more memory at the risk of bumping the price up a bit.
