Raspberry Pi Foundation Launches Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+As the name suggests, the Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ delivers similar specifications to the Raspberry Pi 3. You'll find a quad-core 1.4GHz Broadcom CPU like on the Raspberry Pi 3 B+, dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2. There's no Ethernet port though, and RAM takes a 50% reduction from 1GB to 512MB. Similarly, there's one USB 2.0 port, down from four on the Raspberry Pi 3 and 3 B+.
In 2014, the Raspberry Pi Foundation released the Raspberry Pi the Raspberry Pi Model A+ which, likewise, cut down on RAM. But the original A+ lacked Wi-Fi or Ethernet, whereas the Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ retains Wi-Fi for internet access while dropping Ethernet to cut costs.
Your turn: Will you be adopting a Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+?
