The newest flagship mannequin, the Raspberry Pi three Mannequin B+ prices solely $35. However if you’d like one thing smaller and cheaper, there are different fashions for numerous wants.
Perhaps you simply want a tiny pc for some internet-of-things venture. You’ll be able to go for the Raspberry Pi three Mannequin A+ for $25 in that case. It has a bit much less RAM and fewer ports, but it surely works just about like several Raspberry Pi.
