Raspberry Pi 2 (Model B) NEW

The NEW Raspberry Pi 2 (Model B) is on sale now for $35 with specs stated to be “6x the performance” then the previous Model B, depending on your usage of course. I am intrigued.

I have never used one myself only read about them and seen some YouTube videos, but I want one. Not sure what I’d need it for I just want to try one out. For $35 + plus needed additional components, most of which I have, what’s the harm in trying?

One thing occurred to me when thinking about price vs computing power. Disclaimer: This is not a direct 1-to-1 comparison of course the Raspberry Pi 2 is not a power machine but you’ll get my point.

It’s sad and aggravating how overpriced my iPhone 6 is. And I got the 64GB version so it’s worse. You could insert most phones and this comparison would apply.

Raspberry Pi 2 (Model B)

  • 900MHz, Quad Core
  • ARM Cortex-A7
  • 1 GB Ram @ 400 MHz
  • Micro-SD 32GB max (not included)
    • Expandable via 4x USB 2.0
  • $35

Apple iPhone 6

  • 1400 MHz, Dual Core, 64-bit
  • Apple A8 (aka Samsung)
  • 1 GB Ram
  • Internal 16GB
  • $649 (MSRP)/$199 on contract

Now I know this is not an equal comparison, they are not the same form factor etc., but let’s just talk about pure computing power for my money. Even if you factor in the cost of peripheral devices needed to run Raspberry Pi 2 you are still saving hundreds of dollars. The Raspberry Pi 2 wins hands down. The RAM and Storage alone are ridiculous! Apple charges such a premium for RAM and Storage it’s criminal in my book. Sure it’s not the same exact type of RAM but it’s pretty close. For what both of them can do the difference in cost is huge.

I’m pretty convinced I want to buy a Raspberry Pi 2 and have some fun.
