What is Raspberry Pi™?
The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.

Model B is the higher-spec variant of the Raspberry Pi, with 512 MB of RAM, two USB ports and a 100mb Ethernet port. It’s our most popular model: you can use it to learn about computing; to power real-world projects (like home breweries, arcade machines, musical root vegetables, robot tanks and much more); as a web server; a bitcoin miner; or you can just use it to play Minecraft.
