The new Raspberry Pi 2 Model B+ goes on sale today and it’s well worth its $35 price tag. This little beast is Quad-Core and comes with 1GB of RAM, making it a full-fledged PC for the first time.

The new model centres around its system-on-chip, much like the older models, but this time features Broadcom’s BCM2836, containing four 32-bit ARMv7 Cortex-A7 cores and 1GB of RAM. Talking to The RegisterEben Upton, the guy in charge of Raspberry Pi, says that he now believes the little machine can be considered a true fully-fledged PC.

“It’s a usable PC now. It was always the case that you could use a Raspberry Pi 1 as a PC but you had to say ‘this is a great PC in so far as it cost me 35 bucks’. We’ve removed the caveat that you had to be a bit forgiving with it. Now it’s just good.”

You can go and grab yourself one today, but be quick – only 100,000 will be available for the time being.
