This morning, or yesterday (I'm not really sure I've been drunk off Oscar Fever) Raspberry announced the brand spanking new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. Click through the link if you want all the real specs, I'm just here to give the TL/DR version.
The new Pi 3 is faster, has more ram, is finally 64-bit and has built in wi-fi and bluetooth. I'm pretty excited for the built in wi-fi and bluetooth. In theory that frees up a lot of USB ports. My biggest annoyance with my Pi is that while the box is cool and sleek looking it has like 6 cables running into it, all at very different angles making it look more like a small powerstrip or USB hub, than the super rad video game emulator that it is.
The retail price is still $35 which puts this squarely in the realm of impulse buy, especially since I already have all the accessories, like gamepads and power cables, I need. Now all I need is some time to actually sit at home and put another one together. You know, there's a cold that's been going through my office. Now that I think about it my throat does feel a bit sore..
