The original Raspberry Pi was extremely cheap but offered awesome features fro just £30, but apparently that wasn’t cheap enough and the company has now gone one step further, unveiling the Raspberry Pi Zero, which is priced at just £4.
Obviously with the Zero you don’t get something with amazing specs or features, but what you do get is a computer that has the aim to bring computers to everyone, allowing them to learn code, and design or build anything that the system allows them too.
For that extra budget price tag you do get a 1GHz ARM11 Broadcom BCM2835 processor that is said to be 40 per cent faster than the original Raspberry Pi, backed by 512MB of LPDDR2 SDRAM.
There’s also a microSD card slot for expansion, a mini-HDMI socket for 1080p 60fps video output, a composite video header and an unpopulated 40-PIN GPIO header for developing.
All of this in a unit that is just 65 x 30 x 5mm in diameter.
It also runs on the custom-built Raspbian OS, and can support a number of apps like Minecraft and more.
You can also buy an upgraded unit for £10 that has 8GB of storage.
