Raspberry Pi Foundation launches Model A computer in Europe for $25

Model A computer features one USB port and 256MB RAM

By CBR Staff Writer

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has said that its Model A computer is available for purchase in Europe for $25.

The Model A computer has less onboard memory, when compared to the Model B which has been on sale for a year for $35.

Manufactured in Wales by Sony, the Raspberry Pi Model A features one USB port and 256MB RAM, which is half of the memory of the Model B.

Both Raspberry Pi models run the Linux operating system and the Model A does not feature Ethernet.

The company said that Model A consumes about a third of the power of the Model B, which is essential for those who run their projects from battery or solar power.

Raspberry Pi Foundation community manager Liz Upton said: "We are very, very pleased to finally be able to offer you a computer for $25.

"It’s what we said we’d do all along, and we can’t wait to see what you do with it," Upton said.
