NEWS: Raspberry Pi 3 released
Since reviewing the Kano last year, a build-yourself computer and coding kit based around a Raspberry Pi 2, we've been keenly watching the makers of the Pi. Today not only sees the release of their latest model, the Pi 3, but also the news that it is now the biggest selling British computer of all time, beating the previous record held by Amstrad. Woohoo! Suck it, Sir Alan.
The Pi 3 features some very note-worthy improvements over the Pi 2, including intergrated WiFi and Bluetooth (so no more taking up the USB ports with dongles) and a 64 bit processor, making it 50% faster than the previous model. Despite these improvements, the microcomputer will still retail for a mere £30.
