Raspberry Pi is a mini computer that plugs into your TV (or other Displays) and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it used by kids all over the world to learn programming.
This is a Model B version that provides larger RAM than Model A. It also has two USB ports and an Ethernet port.
Raspberry Pi has a wide application range, such as lightweight web server, a game console with emulator, home automation server, and so forth.
