What Is The True Cost Of Running a Raspberry Pi?

Filed under

Since its release in 2012 the Raspberry Pi has proved something of a phenomenon. Costing less than $40, the Raspberry Pi is a hugely successful computer, largely due to its low price. But is it really as low-budget as you think? Could it be that the true cost of a Raspberry Pi is in fact much more? I decided to take a look.

The Basic Raspberry Pi Package

Perhaps the real reason why the Raspberry Pi costs more than you think it will is because of what you get in the box.

The basic Raspberry Pi is a small 3.370 in × 2.125 in motherboard consisting of a 700 MHz CPU, a 250 MHz GPU, 512 MB RAM, and various USB, Ethernet, HDMI, RCA, audio, powered USB and GPIO connectors, topped off with a single SD card slot.
