element14, maker of the Raspberry Pi, has announced that the Model A version of the tiny computer board is now available in Europe, priced at £15.95.
The Raspberry Pi Model A, built in Wales by Sony, has half the RAM of the Model B (256MB in total), lacks an Ethernet port and features only one USB port. The drop in functionality means it’s not only cheaper but uses less power, and element14 expects it to prove a hit with the education market.
The Model B is hardly bank-breakingly expensive, mind you: it’s just £26. You can read our somewhat glowing review of it here.
