    Martijn WismeijerThey promised us free Bitcoin!

    great price! You can even use it as a web server!


    SD cards wear out fast, use a USB stick or drive instead.

    It takes a while to get used to but is a great way to learn Linux. Originally designed for school childeren but great fun for grownups too. If you want to learn a little bit more about computing, get yourself a Pi 3 and get started! recommended!

    Martijn Wismeijer has used this product for one year.
  • Pros: 



    not so userfriendly as compare to arduino

    It's a mammoth packed in ant body, one can do much more but to start with it is bit hard.

It's been a year of careful planning, development, manufacturing and testing to get to todays release. We had a number of last minute issues which we cleared up but the Pi 3 is now a product! WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth classic + BLE, quad A53 running at 1G with 64k L1$, 512k L2$ and 1G memory.

@gsholling Well done! Awesome work.
@gsholling Sounds like some great upgrades. Looking forward to using it!
I think that the built in wifi is an incredible asset ! the Raspberry Pi has always been a playground for me !
I'm constantly amazed by what these guys can fit into a $35 board
This is such magnificent release, adding the things most wanted to the already lovely rPi.
I hope that someone could help me with this: Is there a website that has a collection of Raspberry Pi Project that can be done by entry level/beginner programmers? I found a few projects, but I would assume that the options are limitless..
@emericvictor This one is full of projects. Some are easy, others are harder. Usually they're documented well enough that a beginner can follow them. https://www.hackster.io/raspberr...
