The Miracle of Raspberry Pi Part 2 and Exclusive Insight of the new Raspberry Pi Zero
After discussing the Raspberry Pi in the last post, I promised to compile a list of projects worth to be checked about. See part 1 : The Miracle of Raspberry Pi (Part 1). But before we make our way to the awesome projects, I have some good news to share. The arrival of Raspberry Pi Zero. What’s the different between Raspberry Pi Zero with another model of Raspberry Pi ? The ultimate difference is the price ! You can get Raspberry Pi Zero with only $5 ! Yeah, you are not mistaken. $5 is the only money you need to buy one credit-card sized computer ! With only a slight decrease of specification from Raspberry Pi 2, it can still perform a whole load of computation. Raspberry Pi Zero is also 40% faster than Raspberry PI 1 and a lot cheaper !. Here is the comparison of specification between Raspberry Pi 1, Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi Zero. (source : element14.com)
What’s a Raspberry Pi ? Is it some kind of food or beverages? Nope! It’s a credit-card sized computer and the most importantly low cost ! Maybe 10 years earlier, we still using a big-sized CPU paired with CRT Monitors taking so much space and also money ofc. Now imagine you can get fully operational mini-sized computer just for about $30-40. Cheap isn’t it? Although it doesn’t come with monitor, keyboard or mouse. You can simply make use of your HDMI-enabled TV as a temporary monitor and use cheap keyboard or monitor. So what’s so amazing about Raspberry Pi compared to conventional computers or laptops?
