Raspberry Pi Zero announced, costs just $5

26 November, 2015
Raspberry Pi has long been the favorite of modders and hackers who wanted a small, but more importantly, a cheap computer they can play around with. At around $20-35, it is one of the cheapest computers you can buy today. But what if you wanted something even cheaper? Sounds kinda impossible but they have managed to make it in the form of the new Raspberry Pi Zero, a $5 computer.

AnonD-190634, 26 Nov 2015I already have pi b+, and i do embedded programming. It just doe... morePi Zero has 2 microusb ports, one for power and another one to be used with an OTG cable. B+ has 4 usb ports if I remember correctly. They can run a full linux distro with many useful desktop applications. They aren't arduinos.

AnonD-226698, 26 Nov 2015...You guys think RetroPi will run well in this?...It definitely will. It runs perfectly on my rpi1 and this is faster. The only problem is the myriads of cables that you need to make it work.
