New $35 computer

New $35 computer

It may not look like much, but this credit-card-sized gadget functions like a full-sized computer.

I've already taken a look at the Raspberry Pi, a bare-bones PC that will run you about $35. The newest version of that PC, dubbed Raspberry Pi B+, just hit the market with about 100 units. It boasts two USB ports bringing the grand total to four, as well as a MicroSD slot for space-saving.

Learn about three computers that you can buy for less than $100.

Surprisingly, the board is targeted at Raspberry Pi's "industrial customers," possibly indicating that this bite-sized PC might have a wider usage than its manufacturers originally intended.

According to the official Raspberry Pi website, the original target for the DIY board was kids and education.

We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn how computers work, how to manipulate the electronic world around them, and how to program.

The $35 computer is a reality. Should you buy it? I've already explored a few of your options, but the pint-sized computers of the future might offer an even better value.
