The Raspberry Pi (short: RPi) is an ultra-low-cost (~16GBP or 25USD Model-A/~23GBP or 32USD Model-B) credit-card sized Linux computer for teaching computer programming to children.

It is developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, which is a UK registered charity (Registration Number 1129409).

The foundation exists to promote the study of computer science and related topics, especially at school level, and to put the fun back into learning computing.

We expect this computer to have many other applications both in the developed and the developing world.


  • Products are RoHS and CE compliant. Please contact Raspberry Pi for details regarding WEEE in your country.
  • For Raspberry Pi frequently asked questions see FAQ.
  • The expected price is 25$ for model A, and 35$ for model B.
  • Estimated availability (as of 31st December 2011) is end January 2012 for the first batch of 10 000. On 31st December 2011 at 22:00, the Foundation auctioned the first two of ten beta boards on a seven-day auction. The following eight were auctioned on the following days. Initially, there will be shipping from the UK and possibly the US, but will probably expand with local distributors by the second quarter of 2012.

RPi History

  • Russell Davis (aka forum admin ukscone) has a series of blog articles recording his perspective of the Raspberry Pi story in several parts from the beginning.


RegHardware did a very detailed analysis on the Raspberry Pi, well worth a read:

RegHardware - Psst, kid... Wanna learn how to hack? - The £25 computer to teach youngsters real computing skills By Chris Williams


You will often hear mention about the BBC Micro Computer when people talk about the purpose of the foundation, a great article by RegHardware details the history of the BBC Micro Computer and why it was brought about.
