              Have you ever heard of a computer which is sized like a floppy disk? Of-course we already have Intel’s NUC, Sapphire’s VS8 etc. But are they really as small like a floppy disk? No, they are not.Here we have such a small computer which is  85.60mm x 56mm x 21mm in size and 45 grams in weight called Raspberry Pi from Raspberry Pi Foundation. The computer is available in two models which are named Model A and Model B. The specifications of the two models are specified below.

Model B:

Price                 : 35$
CPU                  : 700 MHz ARM single core processor
Memory            : 512 MB
USB 2.0 ports    : 2
Video outputs   : Composite RCA and HDMI (14 HDMI resolutions from 640×350 to 1920×1200)

         The model A doesn’t come with the ether net port and number of USB slots is only one. the memory available is also only 256MB RAM.  The price of the Model A is only 25$. the one of the great advantage of this computer is its FullHD video output support. The product can be used for many kinds of applications which includes general use of the computer, education, embedded systems project and many more.
