A Computer That Costs Only R80?




The Raspberry Pi Foundation has revealed the Raspberry Pi Zero computer, which is priced at $5 (around R80 – no thanks to the drop of the South African rand).

The Raspberry Pi Zero is half the size of a Model A+ (just 65mm x 30mm x 5mm dimensions), with twice the utility. A tiny Raspberry Pi that’s affordable enough for any project! You may ask what an R80 computer can do? Well, it runs Raspbian, and will run the likes of Scratch, Minecraft, and Sonic Pi. Many users are starting to use them as media players as well.

The specs:

  • 1Ghz, Single-core CPU
  • 512MB RAM
  • Mini HDMI and USB On-The-Go ports
  • Micro USB power
  • HAT-compatible 40-pin header
  • Composite video and reset headers
