Raspberry Pi Model B+ gets an official price drop down to $25

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced that its wildly popular Model B+ is receiving a price drop down to $25. When it released the Pi 2 back in February, the micro-computing leader pledged continued support for the previous generation B+. Despite a newer iteration with 25% faster processing speeds and twice the amount of RAM, the Raspberry Pi Model B+ is still a very capable machine.

Today’s news comes on the heels of the $9 CHIP microcomputer Kickstarter campaign that has gained a significant amount of notoriety and support. Regardless of the product, new competition and lowered prices is only good news for consumers. We are continuing to see new developers come up with ways to introduce these little computers to different age brackets and demographics.

Of course, the Model A+ is still available for $21, as well as the new Pi 2 which ships for $35. Make sure you check out the cool cases and accessories that are available for Pi.
