This burgeoning demand is being fuelled by newfound appetites for the Pi. While early sales were driven by hobbyist makers and tinkerers, in recent years schools and businesses have began using the boards in serious numbers.

It’s easy to see that momentum continuing, as from today you’ll be able to get far more Pi for your buck. Monday marks the launch of the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B – a machine some 50 percent faster than the Pi 2 that came out just last year.

The Pi 3’s release comes somewhat out of the blue. In the first three years following the Pi’s release there were no major updates to the board but over the past year its capabilities have surged, with the release of the Pi 2 and now the Pi 3.
