New Rapberry Pi Zero costs a fiver

Have you got a fiver to spare? Then you could get yourself a new computer.

We're not kidding - the Raspberry Pi Foundation has just launched their latest computer, and the total cost to you will be not more than €5. For that you get the smallest Pi computer ever made which measures just 65 x 30 x 5 mm. For reference that's actually smaller than a credit card, and only a little bit thicker.

Here it is.

And here's the CEO of Raspberry to chat excitedly about the new board.

The company is all about making access to computers as easy as possible, without the high costs which have often been an issue. And yes they're literally giving away a computer on the front of their magazine. Like so.

You get these specs for that tiny cost:

  • A Broadcom BCM2835 application processor
  • 1GHz ARM11 core (40% faster than Raspberry Pi 1)
  • 512MB of LPDDR2 SDRAM
  • A micro-SD card slot
  • A mini-HDMI socket for 1080p60 video output
  • Micro-USB sockets for data and power
  • An unpopulated 40-pin GPIO header
  • Identical pinout to Model A+/B+/2B
  • An unpopulated composite video header
  • Smallest ever form factor, at 65mm x 30mm x 5mm

So if you were waiting for them to get even cheaper, now's your chance!
