About

The Rpi beta board (model B)

The Raspberry Pi wiki pages on this site are a community work - the Raspberry Pi Foundation is not responsible for content on these pages. Also, the Raspberry Pi isn't released yet - this page is a work in progress in preparation for the launch.

The Raspberry Pi (short: RPi) is an ultra-low-cost credit-card sized Linux computer for teaching computer programming to children. It was 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.


  • For Raspberry Pi frequently asked questions see FAQ.
  • Expected cost: ~16GBP or 25USD Model A, ~23GBP or 35USD for Model B.
  • Products are RoHS and CE compliant. Please contact Raspberry Pi for details regarding WEEE in your country.
  • For information about availability and shipping see the Buying Guide.


You can get the latest news from the Raspberry Pi Foundation Home Page or in the forums.
