Raspberry Pi 3

Since our purchase of the original Raspberry Pi, we knew knew this technology had the potential to skyrocket into the realm of computer hardware. Today, our predictions came true with the release of the Raspberry Pi 3, hosting the fastest processor yet, while also being packed with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology.

Previously, users were required to purchase a USB Wi-Fi adapter for $10 if they desired such capability on their Raspberry Pi. Now those days are a gone. And to make this product even more attractive to the power user, the Raspberry Pie 3 comes with a significant speed boost, upping the CPU to a 64-bit 1.2 GHz chip. The adjustment allows the Pi 3 to work about 50% faster than previous models. The graphics chip is now 400 MHz as well. Available online for $35. [Purchase]
