The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B computer boasts the same footprint and feature-set as its predessor. But now runs an ARM Cortex A7 CPU any 1GB of SDRAM which makes it 6 x faster. Includes USB, Ethernet & HDMI connections. Uses a micro SD card as its data storage device and has a GPIO (general purpose input, output) interface. Very easy to set up and get designing!

This new model is backwards compatible. So you can still run codes that were written for the original.

Compared to the Model B it has:

GPIO. The GPIO header has grown to 40 pins, while retaining the same pinout for the first 26 pins as the Model B.

USB. We now have 4 USB 2.0 ports, compared to 2 on the Model B, and better hotplug and overcurrent behaviour.

Micro SD. The old friction-fit SD card socket has been replaced with a much nicer push-push micro SD version.

Lower power consumption. By replacing linear regulators with switching ones we

About the Raspberry Pi Model B
The RASPBERRY-Pi MOD2B-1GB is a credit card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard, its like a little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing and games. It also plays high definition video. The design is based around a Broadcom BCM2836 SoC, which includes an ARM A7 Cortex 900MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 1Gbyte of RAM. The design does not include a built in hard disk or solid state drive, instead relying on a microSD card for booting and long term storage. This board is intended to run Linux kernel based operating systems.
