Since its launch in 2012, the Raspberry Pi microcomputer has sold over 5 million units, making it the biggest selling British computer of all time, according to a tweet from the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

The Raspberry Pi has evolved beyond appealing just to hobbyists, with schools and universities adopting them as teaching tools, and home users adapting the system to become home media servers, gaming machines and storage hubs.

The Raspberry Pi’s nearest rival, in terms of top-selling UK computers, is the Sinclair ZX Spectrum home computer, which sold 5 million units during the Eighties.
