Meet the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B -- a supercharged sequel to the popular microcomputer. Click through to check it out.
Here's the back of the box, with a bullet-point list of features to the new board. You can see the packaging itself is impressively compact.
The board itself is about the size of a credit card (though a bit thicker of course), and comes in this static shielding bag, important for protecting sensitive electronic gadgetry.
You also get a handy instruction booklet, which has a quick start guide to help you set up your Pi for the first time.
Here's the board itself. It has a new quad-core 900MHz processor and 1GB of RAM. Its makers say that equates to six times more power than the previous Pi.
Here's a top-down view of the new board. Apart from a new processor and more RAM, the connections are the same as before, making the Pi 2 backwards compatible with older accessories and projects.

Here you can see an Ethernet port, alongside four -- count 'em -- USB ports.
Interestingly, there's going to be a Raspberry Pi-compatible version of Windows 10. It'll be a version that brings developer tools, so it won't be for everyone, but it'll be interesting to see what the union of Windows 10 and Raspberry Pi creates.
The new board costs $35 -- the same low cost as the first Raspberry Pi model B.
The Pi 2 model B is on sale from today. Raspberry Pi is one of the most exciting things to happen to computing in recent years, so we can't wait to see what new projects the Pi 2 makes possible.
